Homosexual

Pronunciation:

|ˌhōməˈsekSH(o͞o)əl|

Definition:

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.

Example:

Bruce: “I was nervous when I told my parents that I was Gay, but they were accepting after they realized that my love for Alfred was just like any other love, except for the fact that we were both males.”
