queer: Originally pejorative for gay, now being reclaimed by some gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered persons as a self-affirming umbrella term. Caution: still extremely offensive when used as an epithet.

Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

Originally meant to describe something as unusual or strange. Became a deroggatory word to describe homosexuals. More recently, it has been reclaimed by non-heterosexuals as a word used to describe themselves. Queer can now be used to describe homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgendered people. In scholarly studies the word queer is also used to describe those who practice unconventional sex (e.g. bondage, etc.), therefore even heterosexuals can sometimes be defined as queer.

\`queer\
1. adj.
(a) strange, unusual
(b) gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered

2. n.
A member of the lgbt community.

Background:
Originally, "queer" was simply just another word for strange, unusual, or wierd. When gay people first started coming out of the closet, they were seen as strange, unusual, and diseased. Thus, the word "queer" began denoting someone who is gay, lesbian, transgendered, or bisexual. Recently, it has been adopted by many people in the LGBT commnunity as an acceptable umbrella term. However, not all people are comfortable using it.
1.
(a) That crazy person is quite queer.
(b) My friend is queer, she told me yesterday.

2.
