Fluid Identity and Writing

What do we talk when we talk about queer identity and queer writing? Do the queer identity affects the writing and the language used? Or queer is only presented as a theme and background? In some gendered languages, queer authors are trying to break the rigidity of sexual identities by modificating the language (swapping the masculine and feminine articles, creating new pronouns to embrace the trans, like shim). Are queer authors from Hindi language trying to do the same strategy? Indonesian language is non-gendered. So how queer authors from Indonesia translate queerness into writing?
