      Interesting.

      Coming out specifically as “queer” is quite ambiguous because now queer is really an umbrella term for anyone who is LGBT or non-heteronormative.

      Most of the women her sort of age that I know or know of who identify as queer are basically bisexual but uncomfortable with the term “bisexual” because of the gender-binerism they feel the word implies. I can’t think of anyone who is really a confirmed lesbian who identifies as queer.

      But of course it’s already being reported by some sources (including some LGBT websites who should know better) that Djuan Trent has come out as gay. But that’s wrong. Queer is open-ended, it means that she could have a boyfriend or at least be open to having a boyfriend as well as a girlfriend – but maybe only if he is queer too – or not unless he’s a transman, or not at all, etc, etc, etc.
