As humans we attempt to use labels to explain the world around us. It is difficult to assign anyone a label if they do not first believe it to be true in their own hearts and minds. With that being said, it appears that you have a ftm trans* identity meaning then your gender is male even though your sex remains female. Who you are attracted to has nothing to do with your gender. Essentially you are a gay man just as you said.
It is easy to forget that sex, gender, orientation, and expression are all entirely different and unrelated aspects of who we are as people and no one label can really express all of those nuances. I like to use the genderbread person to explain it to people:
