Begin a new chapter by burying the unpleasant memories of the past and making way for better ones to come in the future.Look forward to the New Year with hope and confidence and you are sure to be blessed with great things.Tough times do not last and the arrival of a fresh year at the end of December is a testimony to this fact. Even your tough phase will not last forever so never abandon hope and lose your confidence.

The word gay arrived in English during the 12th century from Old French gai, most likely deriving ultimately from a Germanic source.[1] 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,[7] 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.[1]

The derived abstract noun gaiety remains largely free of sexual connotations and has, in the past, been used in the names of places of entertainment; for example W.B. Yeats heard Oscar Wilde lecture at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin.[8]

Sexualization

Usage statistics from English books, according to Google Ngram Viewer.
The word may have started to acquire associations of immorality as early as the 14th century, but had certainly acquired them by the 17th.[1] By the late 17th century it had acquired the specific meaning of "addicted to pleasures and dissipations",[9] an extension of its primary meaning of "carefree" implying "uninhibited by moral constraints". A gay woman was a prostitute, a gay man a womanizer, and a gay house a brothel.[1] The use of gay to mean "homosexual" was often an extension of its application to prostitution: a gay boy was a young man or boy serving male clients.[10] Similarly, a gay cat was a young male apprenticed to an older hobo, commonly exchanging sex and other services for protection and tutelage.[1] The application to homosexuality was also an extension of the word's sexualized connotation of "carefree and uninhibited", which implied a willingness to disregard conventional or respectable sexual mores. Such usage, documented as early as the 1920s, was likely present before the 20th century,
although it was initially more commonly used to imply heterosexually unconstrained lifestyles, as in the once-common phrase "gay Lothario",[11] or in the title of the book and film The Gay Falcon (1941), which concerns a womanizing detective whose first name is "Gay". Similarly, Fred Gilbert and G. H. MacDermott's music hall song of the 1880s, "Charlie Dilke Upset the Milk" – "Master Dilke upset the milk/When taking it home to Chelsea;/ The papers say that Charlie's gay/Rather a wilful wag!" – referred to Sir Charles Dilke's alleged heterosexual impropriety.[12] Giving testimony in court in 1889, the rentboy John Saul stated: "I occasionally do odd-jobs for different gay people."[13] Well into the mid 20th century a middle-aged bachelor could be described as "gay", indicating that he was unattached and therefore free, without any implication of homosexuality. This usage could apply to women too. The British comic strip Jane, first published in the 1930s, described the adventures of Jane Gay. Far from implying homosexuality, it referred to her free-wheeling lifestyle with plenty of boyfriends (while also punning on Lady Jane Grey.

ABOUT 2BGay web site

The aim of this site is to open minds and to encourage acceptance and support to anyone that may have difficulties understanding their sexuality or have faced any kind exclusion or discrimination because of homophobia and education to all that want it. We would love nothing else than to see more change in people’s hearts and for no one to be judged by their sexuality but to be loved for who they are and to never  feel excluded by others because of old traditional and out dated ways of thinking.I am a thirty five year old male and I was brought up in a society that to be called gay was a huge put down.Where it was illegal to be gay and you could be arrested and charged for your sexuality and it wasn’t until I turned about eighteen years of age before this very decimate law was finally removed as a crime.Since these much needed changes I have seen a movement in the way society sees and treats anyone who is gay, I have to admit it has been a slow and long road and we still have much to do but in my view at least we are now moving in the right direction and I can see a difference in the hearts of people and I think that the vote for marriage equality in Australia shows the change I speak about.Enjoy the 2BGay web site, please be kind to each other, show love to your fellow human, enjoy helping each other and smile it’s free.
