YES.. just because you now know that you're gay doesn't mean it stops there! Oh no sister!! It's like a religion!!! Take Christianity for example - finding yourself a Christian man is simply not enough in today's society. Christianity has many different branches and is not merely defined as either being a Protestant or a Catholic, so neither is being gay defined only by being bi-sexual or homosexual. 

In today's gay circles, you are defined and categorized by your body type and your actions. Even if you are straight, it's probably in your interest as well to know what gay guys call you.

The second part to exploring your gay sexuality is knowing the actions you do. Actions speak louder than words honey, hence what society (therefore your gay peers) will call you. Knowing these terminologies will also help you understand your own circle of friends and what to refer to them as, albeit sometimes better secretly. 

It is expected that you are a combination of two or more of the following:

Chicken - Anyone who is under the legal age of consent. Young gays & lesbians.

Chicken Hawk - Someone who is attracted to under-age partners.

Clones - The standardized gay male look. In the 70's the look included a mustache, muscle shirt/flannel shirt and Levi's. The late 80's - 90's included short hair, long sideburns, white t-shirt, shorts/jeans and Doc boots with gray socks.

Closet, The - Not revealing one's sexual orientation to the general population.

Cross-Dresser - Dressing in clothing that is traditionally assigned to the opposite gender.

Dutch Boy - Men, gay or straight, who like to hang around dykes.

Fairy - A male homosexual, especially one who acts or dresses in an effeminate manner. This was a common derogatory term for homosexuals during much of the twentieth century. Like dyke and faggot, it has been reclaimed by gay people.

Government-Inspected Meat - A gay man in the armed forces.

Guppy or Guppies - Gay urban professionals, or gay yuppies.

Gym Bunny - A gay man who spends an obsessive amount of time in the gym working on sculpting his body (not for health reasons) only to show it off in a club or on the beach.

Hustler - A male prostitute.

Nancy - An effeminate man (nancy boy).

Pansy - An effeminate gay man, usually used derogatorily. The term has been in use at least since the 1920's.

Fem Fatale - A queeny queen

Straight-Acting - a gay man that can't be detected by a gaydar. In other words, a gay man who more resembles a straight man and the only way you can tell is by making him confess.

Queen - An effeminate gay man. Gay men who aspire to royalty will be disappointed to learn that this usage of the word queen is only a distant relative of the queen who sits on a throne. It is linguistically closer to queen - a disparaging word for an unpleasant or promiscuous woman, dating to the sixteenth century.

Drag Queen - A man who dresses like a woman

Potato Queen - (Asian) guys preferring white men.

Opera Queen - A devoted gay fan of the opera or divas.

Rice Queen - A gay man that exclusively prefers Asian men.

Size Queen - A gay man who is especially interested in partners with large penises.

Snow Queen - A black man who only dates white men.

Theater Queen - A devoted fan of the theater- especially musical theater.

Shore Dinner - A gay man viewed by or who views a sailor as a potential oral sex partner.

Sugar Daddy - An older man who financially supports a younger partner.

Yard Boy - A gay male who prefers to have sex outdoors.

Yosie - An inexperienced gay sex partner.
