Sward

The slang Sward is an English loan word used in the 70s and 80s in the Philippines with the meaning of gay. The most common translation of Sward is turf, and, as much as we have searched, we have not found the relationship with male homosexuality. However, this expression has given its name to the Swardspeak, a jargon of the LGBT community, very flexible and dynamic that is created by mixing words from the Tagalog with English, Spanish, Japanese, and Cebuano.
