    There is no male equivalent of the word lesbian, though "gay" is sometimes understood to mean only men.

    A gay male is gay/homosexual haha. Techincally, lesbians aren't gay- they're lesbian, since gay is a sexuality used especially for mlm while lesbian is the sexuality used especially for wlw. But gay is also just an umbrella term for being attracted to the same sex, that's why you see lots of lesbians/bisexuals use it as well :).

    I just looked in the mirror. There isn't a single label anywhere on my body. If God thought we needed labels, he'd have put them on us.

    Gay. I prefer the term "lesbian" to refer to homosexual women for this reason.

    In both cases they would be called homosexual. Also in both cases it is correct to say a gay person (or gay male/man and gay female/woman). While there is the additional female-specific word lesbian to refer to gay women, there is no male-specific word for a gay man. Usually the word "gay" is understood to be referring to homosexual men as opposed to the word "lesbian" that refers to homosexual women, ie. "gay and lesbian" distinguishing between gay men and gay women.

    Why are we seeking labels? Aren't we all just human?

    A gay male. There are plenty of pejorative words but they are unnecessary.
