    The Q in LGBTQIA stands for Queer and the whole point of chnginy one's personal pronouns is to highlight one's gender.

    As the Q has been embedded in the LGBTQIA acronym I guess it is OK to use it either way.

    My personal choice would be not to use it at all.

    Neither. People shouldn't be addressed by their orientation.

    Does anyone raise the question to call someone A straight or say someone IS straight?

    Both are incorrect - the correct term is "homosexual", or "gay".

    Either is fine.  Queer can be used as a noun, as in the first case, or an adjective, as in the second case.

    A queer means they are gay.  Is queer means they are odd.
