    Cha kusikitisha zaidi ni kuwa hili neno GAY lilikuwa likimaanisha "furaha" lakini kwa ajili ya kutaka kulifanya jambo ovu lionekane jema sasa wamelibadilisha maana yake, nikinukuu:
    Gay is a word (a noun or an adjective) that primarily refers to a homosexual person.
    The term was originally used to refer to feelings of being "carefree", "happy", or "bright and showy"; it had also come to acquire some connotations of "immorality" as early as 1637.The term's use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the 20th century.
    In modern English, gay has come to be used as an adjective, and as a noun, referring to the people, especially to men, and the practices and cultures associated with homosexuality. By the end of the 20th century, the word gay was recommended by major LGBT groups and style guides to describe people attracted to members of the same sex.

    The word "gay" arrived in English during the 12th century from Old French gai, most likely deriving ultimately from a Germanic source. For most of its life in English, the word's primary meaning was "joyful", "carefree", "bright and showy", and the word was very commonly used with this meaning in speech and literature. For example, the optimistic 1890s are still often referred to as the Gay Nineties.
    The title of the 1938 French ballet Gaîté Parisienne ("Parisian Gaiety"), which became the 1941 Warner Brothers movie, The Gay Parisian, also illustrates this connotation. It was apparently not until the 20th century that the word began to be used to mean specifically "homosexual", although it had earlier acquired sexual connotations
