Seems like ASPIRIN (anagram of 'in paris').
ASPIRIN starts with 'a', but 'paris' already contains 'a'.
gay = anagram indicator?
I must not be parsing it correctly…
I need an aspirin!

OIC! That crypt has more twists than French coiffure.
In = IN
gay Paris, starts with = ASPIR (anagrammed 'paris' goes in front of IN)
a = Surface word
pill = Direct
Answer = ASPIRIN
Just swallowed 600mg of Ibuprofen
