    You might expect him to encounter discrimination for his sexuality/sexual orientation

    "You might expect him to encounter discrimination for his sexuality; he was openly homosexual in a time when other gay artists were hiding themselves, but this was never a serious issue." (from Advanced Vocabulary Builder for English Exams of LiveABC)
    Is the word "sexuality" used correctly and properly here? How about "sexual orientation"? Is "sexual orientation" identical to "sexuality"? Thanks!

    One of the meanings of 'sexuality' is 'sexual orientation'. It is clear that this is the one meant in that sentence.
