Zamel is a word of Moroccan origin, and as happens in all words of Maghrebi origin referring to homosexual men, they are only used to name the bottom homosexual, and its connotation is derogatory, humiliating and vexatious.
Etymologically, this term seems to come from the word زميل [zamīl], which means colleague, comrade or companion. Unlike in other languages (Spanish, Chinese, French), the distorted word has lost any kind of euphemistic meaning to become an insult, both in the Maghreb and in France.
