Default The Idea of Genderqueer

I just started reading the book "The Ethical Slut" and I'm a little bit unclear on what it means to be genderqueer. The term queer makes me think of gay/lesbian/bi/etc., but the term seems to specifically apply to the gender(s) one sees themselves playing in society. Is this correct?

I see myself as a straight male. But I don't always enjoy playing the male gender role in a relationship. Sometimes I absolutely love being submissive and allowing the woman to lead and be "the guy", and I really enjoy feminine energy and being around it. I hang out with a lot of females and I don't see myself usually perusing woman the way most guys do.

Does this mean I could be genderqueer? Or is it simply my sexual preference (ie; I'm a "sub" type)?
