poofter

a chiefly British antigay slur that is also common in Australia and New Zealand, often shortened to poof; and, particularly in Britain, is seen as severe as the word faggot.

Still, however, the word is in the process of being reclaimed in much of the Queer community, particularly in its shortened form poof; such as the British cover-band 4 Poofs and a Piano who regularly performed on television, and gay events such as “Poof Doofs”.
