An honest question from an old man about proper LGBTQ nomenclature

I fully support equal rights for everyone, including LGBTQ. However I am in my 60's and a bit confused. When I was young "queer" was an insult. Today it's the last letter of LGBTQ. What, if any, is the difference between gay and queer. Also lately I have been seeing LGBTQIA, which leaves me saying to myself, "huh". I don't mean to offend anyone, I just genuinely want to understand. Thank you.

Shakespare predicted trump and McCain, only he named them Macbeth and Banquo

“By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.”
the witches (describing Macbeth), act III scene IV

"Lesser than Macbeth, and greater."......Not so happy, yet much happier.
the witches (describing Banquo), act I scene III

"In the great hand of God I stand; and thence
Against the undivulg'd pretence I fight
Of treasonous malice!"
Banquo, act II scene III

"Thou canst not say I did it: never shake
Thy gory locks at me."
Macbeth (upon seeing Banquo's ghost), act III scene IV
