‘Queer’ is more exclusive to a range of people who identify their sexuality as out of the mainstream. Bi, Trans, Gay, Kink… etc… Having a “gay” night is too exclusive and the whole point of the event is to create an inclusive fun environment. I’m pretty keen to have a fun and get my Queer on 🙂 – To clarify for you Ben as you seem concerned, I think ‘poof’ is probably not an acceptable term to use in general.

I used to work with a big bunch of poofs, and “poof” was the term they preferred, although the older 3 were happy to be called “queens”.
“Queer” was regarded as some sort of over-educated uni-type of jargon, while “faggot” was a term of derision they used for mincers who wore over-tight shorts and spoke with a silly lisp.
Do they still surround themselves with fag-hags? God, they were truly hideous.
