A Queer person who is also of an ethnic minority; for example, Black and Queer, Latino/Chicano/Hispanic and Queer, etc. The term is generally used by Queer communities of color to celebrate their ethnicity and sexuality without fragmenting the identities into separate categories.
The Quare community in New York has created a culture unique to Queer communities of Color. It is neither exclusively Ethnic nor exclusively Queer in the traditional sense of the terms because it actively incorporate and includes elements of both. Vogueing, a stylistic, club, and urban dance which includes elements of Hip-Hop, Modern dance and runway walking, is one of the many examples of elements specific to Quare culture.

This word is an Ulsterism, a colloquial word used almost exclusively by either old people or spides in Northen Ireland.

It is thought it originates from "Queer" which, when used in Ulster Scots refers to something unussually good.

Quare is often used in conjunction with "Geg" which, means a joke or something funny.
