- found: Random House 2 (Usage: Gay as an adjective meaning "homosexual" goes back at least to the early 1900's. After World War II, as social attitudes toward sexuality began to change, "gay" was applied openly to homosexuals themselves, first as an adjective and later as a noun. Today the noun often designates only a male homosexual: gays and lesbians. The word has ceased to be slang and is not used disparagingly.)
- found: Phone call to Don Michaels, publisher, The Washington Blade, May 20, 1988 (editorial policy of the Blade is to use the terms "gay" and "gays" to include both men and women, both for editorial and sylistic convenience and because the term is not considered pejorative to the majority of lesbians, some of whom prefer to be called "gay" rather than "lesbian." Criticism of this policy surfaces occasionally but it is generally acceptable to the majority of gay people.)
