Can someone be a gay Christian?

No.  It is not possible to simultaneously embrace or identify with a sin while simultaneously claiming to having yielded their lives to Christ’s lordship.  It is possible to be a Christian who struggles with same-sex attraction yet recognizes homosexuality as sin and actively resists their fleshly desires.
No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. [10] By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:9-10 ESV)
For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries.  (Hebrews 10:26-27)
