This week proved to be a momentous one for LGBT communities across the United States and in commemoration of the abolition of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), here is the Queer Categories poster series. It addresses the common stereotypes that both the straight and gay communities refer to more often than not. By owning them, the Queer Categories series shows that these once derogatory terms have significantly changed over time.

Created by Brooklyn-based illustrator Paul Tuller and creative director James Kuczynski, the Queer Categories posters are on sale at Society6. A portion of the proceeds will be going to the Think B4 You Speak campaign by the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which raises awareness of the use of such homophobic words and phrases.
