The word 'gay' describes someone who is emotionally and sexually attracted to their own same-sex gender. Men who are gay often describe themselves as 'homosexuals'. Women who are gay call themselves 'lesbians'. Those who are attracted to both women and men describe themselves as 'bisexuals' or 'pansexuals'. Those who are not attracted to either women or men call themselves 'asexuals' or 'aromantics'. These different categories are all considered part of the LGBTQIA+ community and can be found online in groups, subreddits, forums, etc. This quiz is based on the Kinsey scale, which is a different way of measuring sexual orientation than the more well-known 'Are You Gay?' test.
It is important to remember that no one can determine your sexual orientation for you. Labels are tools that can help you make sense of and understand your identity, but they do not define you. Sexual orientation is a fluid and constantly changing process, especially during adolescence and early adulthood.
It is also important to remember that being gay does not necessarily mean you want to come out. Choosing to keep your orientation private is absolutely fine and can be beneficial in some ways, especially if you are dealing with anti-gay prejudice or discrimination. However, many queer people find that coming out makes them feel better and more confident, and it can lead to a supportive community. If you are interested in becoming more involved in the LGBTQIA+ community, there are a variety of organizations that can provide resources.
