I'm bisexual (with favour more towards the same sex) is it alright if I say to people I'm gay when first coming out to them, so to save the long explanation? It just feels more comfortable to say I'm gay than bi, even though I am occasionally still attracted to the opposite sex.

People tend to argue whether gay is an umbrella term or not, so I would say yes as I do believe it is but prepare some people may judge you for it.

At the end of the day, however, your comfort with the label you use is the most important thing so don’t concern your wonderful self with those people too much and embrace the gay!
