Cram it in me, baby!

Can someone tell me what Queer is supposed to be and why some insist on adding Q to the LGBTROFLMAO acronym? From what I can gather, it was supposed to be used as an umbrella term.
As used, it's an umbrella term for "not straight". It's also a signifier for the current counter-culture that exists predominately on Woke Twitter.

It used to be considered a slur that pissed people off in the LGBT community, as far I know.
Which is why I find it weird they seem to be happy to include it now. Does being called gay not sound special enough, anymore ?

A bit off-topic (and a bit too much powerlevel) but still a legit question, is there any signs or ways to at least try to identify someone's sexuality?
I have a co-worker (at the same enterprise but not at the same room / section) that is "softer" (I don't really know how to describe tbh) compared to every single other man here (PS: there is a dude that works here that is gay but he is very different from him) , we don't talk to each other everyday but I think he might like me, everytime we talk (about random subjects like the latest game) it seems very obvious to me that he is making an effort to keep talking with me and knowing better me, I want to at least try to figure out if he is actually interested in me or he is just trying to be friendly, I dont like the ideia of just asking right on his face (wich I think is very rude) but I also don't want to keep this for too long and make he think that I like him as a bf.

Aditional info: his facebook friends are quite balanced (not too much guys or girls) wich might be an indicator for some people

You could casually mention your girlfriend/your ex-girlfriend/a date you went on with a girl/a girl you think is attractive so that even if he is gay, he'll know you're not.

I have a question.
Has anyone here been the victim or receiver of homophobia? and what would you consider the lower limits of the criteria for something to be homophobic?
same question but prefix adjusted for the trans people.

I mean, homophobia/transphobia can be anything from being insulted to being beaten, and in shittier places, killed. I feel like everyone has experienced little shits calling them fags or whatever back when they were in school, even if they weren't fags, that's just growing up.
I received my fair share of insults and got in a few fights, with kids and adults alike growing up, and from just kids I had weird shit stuck to my lockers, was kicked out of the locker room I was supposed to be in, got shit stolen from me. Once I got out of public school it really wasn't a problem anymore, people don't give as much of a shit. 🤷‍♂️
