Tagalog/Filipino Gay Lingo


Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I'm sure most of you are familiar with the 'Filipino Gay Lingo', which are the words, sentences and phrases that were coined and used by the common gays in the Philippines. It is actually interesting to know that both men, women, young and old, and people with different gender preferences learn (accidentally or intentionally!) the Filipino gay lingo. Most of us hear it at work, at school, at home, on televisions, on the streets, while commuting, in a restaurant - everywhere! I do find it funny at first but isn't it fascinating to discover another set of words (which are fluffy, funny and engaging) that emerged from the regular Filipino language, which is flavored by the gay culture?

Got this example from a comment from the said Buzzfeed post:
"Kebs may be explained as a derivative of the spanish words Que ver which became keber...to kebs"

Please share the Gay lingo terms that you know!
