This is a very simplified, short, mostly estimated ‘timeline’, please do your own research before taking any of this into account.
(Again, this is super short and simple, plus guessed / estimated.)
Meaning over time (estimated by us, chronological order):
|Excitable, happy||In a queer mood|
|Different, abnormal, strange||He’s being weird and queer.|
|A slur / insult for LGBTQ+ people||Eww, queer.|
|Taken back, as a way to say LGBTQ+ easily||I’m queer!|
Thanks for reading!
