Gayja Vu occurs when one realizes that not only are they in fact homosexual, but they may have acted in a homosexual way or perhaps have been a homosexual their entire life, giving that person an eerie sense of homosexual familiarity.

If we assume that the experience is actually of a remembered event, then Gayja Vu probably occurs because an original homosexual experience was neither fully attended to nor elaborately encoded in memory. If so, then it would seem most likely that the present situation triggers the recollection of a fragment from one's homosexual past. The experience may seem uncanny if the memory is so fragmented that no strong connections can be made between the fragment and other memories.

Thus, the feeling that one has been gay before is often due to the fact that one has, in fact, been gay before. One has simply forgotten most of the original homosexual experience because one was not paying close attention the first time. The original homosexual experience may even have occurred only seconds or minutes earlier.

On the other hand, the Gayja Vu experience may be due to having seen homoerotic pictures or heard vivid homoerotic stories many years earlier. The experience may be part of the dim recollections of a homosexual childhood.
Deion watched his head coach kiss and caress his tender calves and thighs with an eerie yet distinct sense of Gayja Vu, as he realized that he had been enjoying similar situations throughout his entire life in school locker rooms.

Somewhat like Deja Vu except the event that you have previously seen is a very awkward moment.
Guy hooks up with girl, says he'll call her, but doesn't and knows he's going to see her again and it'll be awkward.
