1. when I was in high school people used it as a synonym for colorful,
out-there, jolly, bright,
not corrupt, idiotic or trashy...actually the opposite of those words if anything- Not saying it's right but not sure the words on there are correct.

4. The word "gay" is now used as a pejorative. "That's so gay" means "That's bad."
This usage is pervasive among young people now, but I think that it may have peaked and be dying out. We can hope.
