I read and hear a lot about 'gay' and ‘lesbians' ? I don’t understand what it means.

The terms that you have inquired about is related to homosexuality. To understand it you need to know about sexual orientation. “Sexual Orientation” refers to an individual’s sexual attraction towards, and interest in developing relationships with, members of one’s own or the other sex. Homosexuality is a sexual orientation that refers to an erotic attraction to, and interest in forming relationships with members of one’s own gender. The term denotes sexual interest in members of one’s own gender and applies to both men and women. Homosexual men are often referred as ‘Gays’ and homosexual women are referred as ‘Lesbians’.

Homosexual, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are labeled and discriminated in a prejudiced society where only heterosexuality is considered as normal sexual orientation. To know about how this discrimination has an impact on LGBT people read about Sexuality and Labeling.
