During the 70's when almost all societies would still prosecuted publicly known homosexuals; a group of homosexual men in Amsterdam founded a clandestine private club where they could hang out free of prosecution to have drinks, smoke, chat, play cards and whatnots. They called the club and themselves as "G.A.I." (Gentlemen Association International). As time went by, word of mouth had also attracted heterosexual friends to join and attend the club.

When this term migrated to the U.S.A. and other English speaking Countries, without knowing the whole history of the term, people assumed it was gay and not G.A.I.
"Are you G.A.I?" would mean "Are you a G.A.I. member?" But in today's world of: "Are you gay?" literally asking if you are a homosexual person.

Gay is not only a term people use to describe someone who doesn't fit in or does something different. For many people it is a lifestyle and only one characteristic of an entire human. ( next time you want to call something gay, think twice about it)
I just told my parents i was gay and they were kinda accepting.

Insult or used to imply that something is stupid or inappropriate. Not necessarily a generic term but used when other descriptors do not come to mind.
