Gay men are male homosexuals. Some bisexual and homoromantic men may dually identify as gay, and a number of gay men also identify as queer. Historic terminology for gay men has included inverts and uranians.

Gay men continue to face significant discrimination in large parts of the world, particularly in most of Asia and Africa. In the United States, many gay men still experience discrimination in their daily lives,[1] though some openly gay men have reached national success and prominence, including heads of state or government such as Xavier Bettel (Luxembourg) and Leo Varadkar (Ireland).

The word gay is recommended by LGBT groups and style guides to describe all people exclusively attracted to members of the same sex,[2] while lesbian refers specifically to female homosexuals, and gay men to male homosexuals.[3]
