I used to feel that the word Queer was bad and a negative term until recently. I'm of the age of when coming out we tried to be all inclusive and use all the acronyms. When I had a friend that was a lesbian, then transitioned to being male, he explained that he didn't see himself as straight, but Queer. I then understood what the word queer really meant.

I actually really like the term queer. To me it just means anyone who isn't "straight". I like the inclusiveness of the term.
