SDGLN Poll: Readers give their opinion on use of the word, "queer"

SAN DIEGO – Readers of San Diego Gay & Lesbian News who took our poll are evenly split over whether the LGBT community should “own” the word “queer.”

Our poll question was: The LGBT community increasingly embraces the word "queer." What do you think? Why not just own the word? Why go down that road? Or not sure.

The new SDGLN Reader Poll question asks readers: Are you a gay parent?
