Medieval terms for gay people

In the Middle Ages, what terms might have been used for gay people? I know "sodomite" is the obvious one, but were there any others (hopefully less perjorative)? The characters I'm writing wouldn't have any classical education, so terms like "Ganymede" probably aren't on the cards.
