The “yassified” variant of Wordle is all the rage amongst the vibrant LGBTQI community, and this article is a hearty shout to the very same spin-off. Yes, we are talking about Queerdle. Although it is a Wordle clone, it is revamped from skin to marrow to pull in the entirety of the queer community and anyone interested in learning more about their lexicon.
At the same time, the difficulty level of the word game has also jumped from 100 to 500. Let’s analyze the whys.
Queerdle Help: How to find hints in Queerdle
Jordan Bouvier, the creator of Queerdle has completely revamped Wordle to create a truly queer clone that is aesthetically well-made in both appearance and resources. Setting apart the colors, emojis, and themes, one of the most striking differences seen in Queerdle is the varying character length of the daily Queerdle words.
Queerdle is based on a carefully curated word list, handpicked by Bouvier himself to deviate from the predominantly heteronormative demographic and narrative related to Wordle. He even accepts word suggestions from players, which are regularly added to the source word list.
The word length could be anywhere between 4 and 8 characters, maybe even compound words that fit the scheme. To top it all, Queerdle is comes with a clear NSFW tag, so it is like a ticking bomb of queer words of all nature, size, and type.

Players often struggle to find the mystery word of the day, the varying word lengths do not help the process either. Over 30 Queerdles in, the general pattern observed in the words is the variety in origin/source. Bouvier adds that he has broadened the scope of the source list to accept virtually anything that can be identified as queer (of course in the most non-offensive ways). He has explained that to truly tap into the real essence of queerness he has brought in related terms from historical context, drag community, and slang variants.
Queerdle is HARD. It just took me 3 hours (not exaggerating) to come up with my second guess. 😂 This word is 8 letters!

To look for hints, you need to start with a word that is commonly heard or used and traverse to its queer variant depending on the feedback given by the system.
We, like you, do not know where to begin — (perhaps should catch up with RuPaul’s before starting?). yet we have tried to comb through some digital LGBTQ glossaries to come up with a reference word list…yes, it is the one right below!
Queerdle Words lists:
DISCLAIMER: We do not claim to be well-versed in the queer lexicon. The terms and words listed below are compiled on the basis of LGBTQ, queer, and drag glossaries; any terms — offensive or classified — if caught amongst, are purely uninformed inclusions. We welcome corrections and suggestions! If you have any suggestions (to remove or add words) regarding the list, kindly let us know in the comments.
SPOILER ALERT: The words in the list below, grouped according to character length, are taken off reference websites for LGBTQ, drag, and queer terminology, glossary, and slang. Spoilers may be inevitably included amongst the words!
4-letter Queerdle Words
- Werk/ Work
5-letter Queerdle Words
6-letter Queerdle Words
7-letter Queerdle Words
8-letter Queerdle Words
The Queerdle answers clearly show a bias towards slang words, but our limited knowledge in the field has forced us to condense the word list thus. Hope it will help us clear tomorrow’s Queerdle in one fell swoop!
Help us improve the quality of the word list with awesome contributions in the comments! We are waiting!
