There are many terms describing a person who has a sexual preference for members of the same gender. The most clinical of these is homosexual. Other terms include queer and gay, but all of these terms are applied to both men and women indiscriminately.
Lesbian, as far as I can tell, is the only term that is used to describe a person of a gender having a sexual preference for a member of the same gender used exclusively for the female gender.
I have searched around and the closest I have come to an answer is “male gay” or “gay man,” neither of which is sufficient in my mind.
Is there a male equivalent word describing having a same-gender sexual preference, such as lesbian is for women?
