term used to refer to the homosexual man both in Spain and in Latin America. Although it is not a well-known word and in principle it seemed a localism (since it seems to be used by the heterosexual men in Andalusia to refer to a homosexual in the closet), the first reference was found in the 50s in Mexico, in the 70s in Colombia and in Spain in the 80s.The use of flower names as a euphemism or as an insult is also found in other languages such as English, with terms like Daisy, Pansy and Buttercup, whereas in Spain the use of generic word “flor” (flower) and its variations is more frequent to point homosexuals. You can also find amapolo with the meaning of transvestite.
