If you want to be offended, that's *your* problem!
If they weren't trying to offend you & you got offended, whose fault is it?

I've homosexual friends. I know of homo-s who would rather be described as "queer", than "gay".
If you feel that strongly, heckle the performer for being a jerk. Mostly though, the matter of offense is always down to YOU. No matter who 'you' are, no matter who the alleged offender is, it's down to you.
You can't offend *me* - I refuse to play that game. It's very much your problem. Sorry...
