Explaining a gay relationship can already be daunting.
Let alone explaining the more complicated nuances about queerness.
Or any number of deeply personal romantic alignments unfamiliar to most.
There's benefit in naming each identity.
In that knowing they exist alleviates some measure of loneliness.
Words can be used in ways that broaden — rather than restrict — everyone's happiness and choices.
This can take time for you to discover.
Or to explain to others.
That doesn't mean you choose your partners that much differently than others.
Queer should make these questions obsolete.
Because it's about not trapping anyone in set binaries.
And making more people feel at home in the LGBTQ community.
As well as everywhere else.
