A question inspired by church yesterday [View all]

The pastor of my church, who is caucasian like I am, stated that some gays and lesbians of color are calling themselves same sex loving instead of gay or lesbian since the latter terms were invented by caucasians. I had, to be honest, never heard of this before. So here is my question. Are you of color, and have you ever heard of that term being used instead of gay or lesbian.
