Gay is both an umbrella term for all LGBT people and a specific word that means homosexual.

It has a semantically problematic nature, given it is used as both by many people, often erasing the less privileged people included in the umbrella. As such it suffers from the trappings of a blanket term, usually picking out the identities of cis, white, and male too. This semantic issue is a byproduct of intersectional oppression, where individuals with a gay (meaning homosexual) sexuality or identity are not as included as white cis ablebodied men.
