This article reflects on a research topic undertaken by Wendy Peters. Peters perceives queer as a non-static definition, and wanted to see what those who claimed it as an identity category believed it to mean for them. She conducted qualitative research with just seven participants, located throughout Canada (although only one was not in a major urban centre). Her research was based on dialogue with these seven participants via a listserv. In the main, it seems that her correspondents perceived queer as a label that freed them from many of the constraints associated with other labels, such as straight, gay, dyke, etc.
