What is queer art?

Past events:

​What distinguishes queer culture?

Is there an essence of queer art, or is queer art rather the sum of all art with a queer theme?

The term 'queer' can be used in describing art and culture, but it is also an identity and a struggle for equality. How do struggle and celebration unite through culture?

And is it acceptable for heterosexuals to borrow elements and 'queer' themselves up?
