This is a term coined in the late 19th century to describe the understanding that some people have an inborn physical and emotional attraction to members of their own gender instead of the opposite sex. Sexuality involves much more than whom one is attracted to; it is an integral part of one’s personality and way of seeing and relating to life and other people. Gay is a term commonly used to refer to male homosexuals. Lesbian is a term that describes female homosexuals. Bisexual refers to people who may be attracted to either gender.
