What does Leviticus 18:22 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 18:22

Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind
By carnal knowledge of them, and carnal copulation with them, and mixing bodies in like manner: this is the sin commonly called sodomy, from the inhabitants of Sodom, greatly addicted to it, for which their city was destroyed by fire: those that are guilty of this sin, are, by the apostle, called "abusers of themselves with mankind", ( 1 Corinthians 6:9 ) ; it [is] abomination;
it is so to God, as the above instance of his vengeance shows, and ought to be abominable to men, as being not only contrary to the law of God, but even contrary to nature itself, and what is never to be observed among brute creatures.
