Being gay can imply two things. You are said to be gay when you are in a sexual relationship with another male. Being gay is not an issue in western societies but societies which are orthodox don’t view gay men in the right light. The female version of a gay male is the so-called lesbian female, i.e. a female who has sexual relationships with another female. In the words of Armistead Maupin, “My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too damn short.” Being gay can be used in another context too. The word gay also implies being happy. So, being gay is all about being happy, excited and thrilled. Being gay is actually good. It is needless to take any tension or do some useless thinking. Taking stress and tension won’t do you any good. So, make sure that you stay happy and gay all the time. Rather than focusing on all the sad parts of life, concentrate on all the good and happy parts.
