I hardly think that the use of "gay" for homosexual can be considered slang anymore. It has become over the past 30 years the primary meaning of the word and today the previous meanings can be considered obsolete. I don't see any difference between meanings 3 and 4, 'homosexual' and 'pertaining to homosexuals'.
In the United States, no federal protection exists for job discrimination against LGBTQ professionals, and fewer than half the states offer any, which means that in most of this country, you can be fired simply for being queer. The EU offers job protection based on sexual orientation, but not explicitly around gender identity and expression. Few areas of Asia, Africa, or South America offer any protection at all; Australia does, but increasingly as in the U.
Is "lisp" the right word? The gay accents I'm familiar with are very distinct, but don't really have lisps. I'm not proposing the article be moved or anything; just food for thought. The gay lisp is also known in the community as the 'shane' accent.

Some 29 per cent of respondents to the study said they thought they may have an alcohol dependency while 36 per cent reported being stared at or intimidated in the last 12 months, 28 per cent had been verbally insulted and 3.

On the Friday-night train journey he found himself surrounded by loud chattering gay men. He felt repelled. As soon as I started speaking to my peers, I discovered that our voice was something that most, if not all, of us had thought about at some point and had anxiety about.
Gay male speechparticularly within North American Englishhas been the focus of numerous modern stereotypes, as well as sociolinguistic studies. Scientific research has uncovered phonetically significant features produced by many gay men and demonstrated that listeners accurately guess speakers' sexual orientation at rates greater than chance. Research does not support the notion that gay speech entirely adopts feminine speech characteristics, but, rather, that it selectively adopts some of those features. Linguists have attempted to isolate exactly what makes gay men's English distinct from that of other demographics since the early 20th century, typically by contrasting it with straight male speech or comparing it to female speech.
