Camp is what we might call a false Anglicism since the term comes from the French expression “se camper” which means posing (in front of someone) in an exaggerated way and that was related to prostitution and Transvestism. From this point, this term passed to the English language at the beginning of the 19 century, with the meaning of exaggerated, effeminate, vulgar, ostentatious, etc… It ended up coining a movement or artistic trend related to kitsch, popular, variegated and even absurd things, that although going beyond a properly sissy aesthetic, is often associated with the LGBT subculture.
