Queer is an umbrella term used to refer to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or other non-normative gender identities and sexual orientations. It is often used to refer to the entire LGBT+ community. Lesbian, on the other hand, is specifically used to refer to individuals who are solely attracted to women, or identify as female. Lesbian is a more specific term than queer, and is often used to refer to a specific group of people within the LGBT+ community.
Queer is also used as a political term to describe people who challenge traditional gender roles and heteronormativity. It is often used to refer to people who live outside of traditional gender roles and sexual norms. Queer is an inclusive term that can be used to refer to anyone who doesn’t conform to traditional gender and sexual identities. Lesbian, however, is a more specific term and is used to refer to people who identify as female and are attracted to women.
