It is written in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights that every human is born free and equal. However, for millions of Queer people, this is not the case.

The term ‘Queer’ is most commonly used as an umbrella term to define a range of sexualities and gender diverse peoples. It can also be used to illuminate the baggage we as Queer people bring to the table of society. Queer people go through society differently to our heterosexual counterparts because society continues to view us as the other.
