An alteration and shortening of now obsolete hómósexúalisti.
- Although the word hommi can be used maliciously, it is the word mainly used when referring to homosexuals, and is itself used a lot by homosexuals. It is perhaps viewed in the same way as gay; i.e. a more casual and less dated word over being gay (beating lengthy words like homosexuality and in Icelandic; samkynhneigð). The term hommar og lesbíur is most often used about gays and lesbians.
