Gay refers to people who are attracted romantically and/or sexually to people of the same sex. The term "homosexual" is no longer used because it is too clinical. Gay men are called "gay men," while gay women are called "lesbians." Sexual orientation, such as being gay or straight, is inborn and not a choice (except for people who are bisexual rather than gay or straight).
