What Type of Gay Are You?

If you're gay, it's probably safe to assume that you are attracted to people of the same sex. However, sexual orientation can be more complex than just a simple "gay" or "heterosexual." You might also identify as bisexual or pansexual, which are a little more complicated and often include attraction to people of different genders. This quiz tries to determine your position on the Kinsey scale, a system that Alfred Kinsey developed in 1948.

Gay, lesbian, and bisexual people are increasingly visible in a wide range of careers. Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O'Donnell are popular lesbian comedians, while Barney Frank is a prominent member of Congress. The writers of the TV show Will and Grace even included a prominent gay character in Jack McFarland, who was flamboyantly feminine. However, stereotypes about homosexual men persist. They are often portrayed as fashionistas who love to shop and tan, and they may prefer to work in professions like interior design, modeling, or hair styling.

Many people use the word gay to describe themselves, but others find it offensive or outdated. A few LGBT organizations suggest the term queer as a more self-affirming alternative, but this word has dark roots as a slur and is best reserved for quotation marks or in formal names of groups or events. Moreover, many gay, lesbian, and bisexual people don't want to be called queer; they prefer to stick with the more familiar terms lesbian, gay, or male.
