Polyamory isn't LIKE being queer, it IS queer in itself. Queer literally means out of the ordinary; unusual compared to "the norm". Most people around us being mono; poly is the queer side.

As for sexual identity, I don't believe so. As polyamory is literally about love and not sex. Though many people who can love many, would also be ok with having sex with many, too. So there is often that sexual identity behind the "love identity". =P

I'm not sure what the specific word would be for being sexually attracted to many people [without gender or sex being impanted in the word], but queer works just fine. Even though it is a loose-fitting term, that's what is good about it. But it goes on top of the Homo-, hetero-, bisexual identities, too.
