Originally meaning “strange” or peculiar”, queer came to be used pejoratively against those with same-sex desires or relationships in the late 19th century. Beginning in the late 1980s, queer scholars and activists began to reclaim the word to establish community and assert an identity distinct from the broader gay identity. British director Derek Jarman famously explained that while the term used to frighten him, it eventually became a label of personal ‘liberation’ allowing him to express his sexuality within the framework of his cinematic works. More recently, it has become reclaimed as a fluid term for people of different sexualities and gender identities.
