  1. closet queen

    A closet queen is a term primarily used in the LGBTQ+ community to refer to someone who is homosexual but has not disclosed publicly, or only to a limited number of people, their sexual orientation. The term is often associated with the fear or reluctance of experiencing potential social stigma or discrimination due to one's orientation. It implies a person who is "in the closet" or concealing their true self. However, it's considered somewhat outdated and potentially derogatory, as it doesn't reflect the complexities involved in the process of coming out.
