The Tagalog word Binabae appears in some dictionaries as a synonym for bakla, which in short, can refer to a homosexual man, effeminate man, a transgender or transsexual woman, and even hermaphrodite. However, the parts that form this word can give us some clue, since Bina- means to build, and -bae refers to babae, which means woman. According to this, Binabae would be “made a woman” as opposed to “being a woman.” The slang Binalaki would be the analogous expression for lesbian people.
