Gay Dictionary: English

How to say gay in English

English is an Indo-European language spoken by over 500 million people and is official in more than 80 countries and territories. The national varieties of English, as well as Polari slang or Cockney rhyming slang create specific words from particular regions and others that travel from one place to another while retaining its meaning or exchanging it for another similar or radically different.

Most of the words are from the 19th and 20th centuries, but some date back to the 17th century, so you can find words that are no longer used, but all are useful to unravel how humanity has been linked to the homosexual behavior. There are also current expressions which, with time, we will expand.


The majority of the terms are originally created by straight people, so somehow expressed contempt and hostility that fear of homosexual behavior produced and continues producing, although in many cases the passage of time has been erased all that negativity and ended up being incorporated into normal speech and even into LGBT vocabulary.

Following the classification of Professor William A. Percy we can relate the terms and expressions of our English Gay Dictionary in 4 groups:


  1. For gays with active sexual role.

  2. For gays with passive sexual role.

  3. For effeminate men. The patriarchal feminization, in addition to turning homosexual men into women, by a puerile but tenacious psycho-biological determinism, transfer the worst stereotyped characteristics of women to gay men for the simple fact of being.

  4. For homosexuals who perform fellatio.

to which we have considered interesting add two more groups:


  1. The jargon of the gay community, which often is extremely brutal and other rather funny.

  2. The jargon of male prisons, that somehow shows the sexual plasticity of men.

The words and expressions of our English Gay Dictionary have been obtained from many different sources, but unlike many of these sources, which are copies from one another, each of the items has been analyzed, investigated, contrasted and expanded within the posibilities. During the making of this dictionary we have met with the revealing, extensive and excellent work of William Percy, professor at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, not quoted as a source but rather as approach.
