  1. I think because “gay” also means “happy,” “joyful,” “bright,” and that’s precisely how gay men were once (and still are, in a way) perceived.

  2. There was a time (a couple centuries ago) when “gay” meant immoral, promiscuous, lascivious, deviant. At the time, of course, homosexuality was most certainly not a “normal” thing, it was an aberration and a sin, so I guess that’s how it translated into today’s meaning.
