Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Trans-gendered text based notes:

Gay: term used to generally describe when a male is physically or
sexually attracted to another male.  Also used to generalize any
physical intimacy between 2 people of the same gender or to
denote feminine actions a man takes (real or perceived)

Lesbian:  term used to generally describe when a female is
physically or sexually attracted to another female.  

Bi-Sexual:  used to denote people that are sexually attracted to OR
participate in sexual acts of intimacy with both genders

Trans-gendered:  Put simply, it’s when a person of one gender
believes they should be a person of another gender. Some go and
have sex changes. Some do not.
