Unlike other large dictionaries such as English, Spanish Gay Dictionary, does not focus on the top / bottom role in sex, and blowjobs. Nor as the Italian, obsessed with passive (bottom) homosexuals.

In addition to the search and investigation, we highlight the following sources:

  • DRAE. Diccionario de la Real Academia de la Lengua Española.
  • Diccionario Sucinto para el lector no entendido. Alberto Cardín.
  • Diccionario de expresiones malsonantes del español. Jaime Martín.

Term Definition

its literal translation to English is pavement (UK) or sidewalk (US). Although in most cases it appears as the idiom "es de la acera de enfrente" (is from the opposite sidewalk), in several dictionaries as the Martin and Leon, it appears as a term to point to homosexual or effeminate man. "Es de la acera de enfrente" is related to the pathologizing idea of sexual inversion, which has produced terms as “Invertido” and “Invertito” in the Spanish and Italian language, or “Konträr” in German language, meaning Invested.

In English language we find the same meaning with expressions like “bat for the other team”, “play for the other team” and “for the other team”.
