Roseanne Barr Reveals She Identifies As Queer: ‘I Put the Q in LGBTQ’

World Values Network And The Jewish Journal Host "Is America A Forgiving Nation?" With Roseanne Barr

Roseanne Barr said she is as “queer as two motherfuckers” in a new video she posted on her YouTube channel Sunday.


In the now-deleted video, Barr began by talking about how much she hates the derogatory slur “fag.”

“Man, the word fag is a really hateful word, isn’t it?” Barr, who appears to be sitting in a golf cart, began.

“Especially when it’s like one gay calling another gay guy that. Whoo! Have you ever been in the middle of one of them hate marriages? Whoof!”

She continued: “It’s like ‘Wait a minute. We’re not supposed to say that word. How come you’re saying that word? What? Okay, I just can’t say the word. Well, I can when I’m in the house, but I can’t say it outside of the house. Okay, I get your rules.’”

Barr, 66, goes on to say that “fag” is a “hateful word” and people “should get rid of it.”

“Get rid of it being spoken,” she added. “All that LGBTQ stuff, okay, let me just be real. I put the Q in LGBTQ. Okay. Because I am queer as two motherfuckers. I’m queer. I’m alien. I don’t belong here with all these people. They make no sense. They are very queer. And that makes me a queer, I guess. But I did put the Q in it. Bye.”

Barr, who has a gay brother and a lesbian sister, was the first recipient of GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, an honor presented to a member of the entertainment community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBTQ people.

She shared the award with then-husband Tom Arnold in 1993.
