Explanation: 同性恋者（tong xing lian zhe）This is the official equivalent Chinese word for homosexual persons, including gays and lesbians.
同志（tong zhi）This is the popular word for homosexual persons in Taiwan/Hong Kong. Originally it is the translation of the word comrades. I don't know why they choose this word. Be careful in using this word in mainland China, because it is confusing.
基佬（gei lou）This the Cantonese word for gay. It is a phonetic translation of the word gay.
