This was the question that made it onto a new video, as well as a new song from the singer of the band, Joy Orbison, who says she doesn’t think she’s gay.
“What I’m saying is, I’m not a lesbian,” she says.
But the video, which was made by the Irish Lesbian Alliance, is the first time a gay woman has talked about her sexuality publicly, and the video sparked a lot of controversy.
One of the most widely shared comments on the video reads: “You’re not gay.
That’s what’s on the lips of every straight girl who doesn’t want to be a lesbian.
It’s not OK.
It doesn’t belong in the same category as your boyfriend or your husband.
That should be on your birth certificate.”
But a few people disagreed, saying that gay people aren’t inherently lesbian.
A group called Gay Life Ireland, for example, called the video “misogynistic”.
“I think that’s pretty extreme,” said the group’s president, Mary O’Connor.
“You don’t have to be in a relationship with a man to be gay.
You just need to be straight.”
The group said it would take legal action against the video.
“The Irish Lesbian and Gay Association has expressed its concerns over the video that was made for the launch of a new Gay Life charity,” a statement said.
“They are disappointed by the portrayal of gay people in the video and wish to put the matter to rest.
They have asked the Irish Government for a clarification on their position and wish it to take action.”
Another group called Outright, said it felt that the video was “misleading” and “sexist”.
“In the past, LGBT people have been seen as a sexual minority, and they have been the subject of ridicule and ridicule,” they said in a statement.
“It’s very disappointing to see that people are so keen to depict gay people as being inherently homosexual, that they are so focused on this aspect of sexuality and not on the fact that they’re a minority.”
