Home » Glossary » Sexual Orientation » Homosexual





A sexual orientation defined as someone who is attracted to members of the same sex. A female homosexual is often referred to as a lesbian and a male is known as gay(s).

Homosexuality has a significant stigma and prejudice attached to it (particularly in religious circles), but has been around for thousands of years and is another form of sexuality.
