    It's no secret that Gaylingo is becoming more and more mainstream. From YAAAAASS to Reading someone to filth. Whether you don't use any, or you're desperately trying to make Madinosaur (excuse my french) happen. Tell me, how update to date is your, Lingo?

    oh the shade of it all...

    well this is all american Drag culture speak which most people initially got from the Paris is Burning video ...except for those who were there ...I think we should be clear that it is Drag Queen culture of which I am a proud admirer and not Gay speak ...also it is particularly american lingo ...only now thanks to a certain drag queen reality show it has started to spread across the globe ... I believe in the UK they have something called Polari mostly from the 1960s was a form of gay/drag slang which I do not know at all

    in south africa where I come from there is a lingo called Gail or Gayla ..which was developed in the coloured/mixed race areas of Cape Town it does borrow a bit from Polari ...this I used to know quite well it is a lingo made almost entirely of womens names

    like Patsy = Party
    Hilda = Ugly
    Olga = Old
    Beulla = beautiful
    Nora = boring
    Dora = a drink

    a boyfriend is a Bag ...because he is like an accessory.. "oh you brought your new bag to the patsy ? "

    My friend and I love yelling random lines from RuPaul's Drag race contestants that make no sense towards eachother.

    Like Gia Gunn's ''Tilapia''
    And Laganja's annoying Okuuuuur is replaced by the normal Okay icon_lol.gif

    Yes, you are very right. It is drag speak that is widely known all over the world lately. I found on the internet a lot of terms I don't know anything about. icon_cry.gificon_neutral.gif

    I myself am from Holland, and I can tell you before the winners of RP's Dragrace made their world tour after winning, NO one said anything close to the world Shade.

    No T no Shade no Pink lemonade, but after Sharon Needles and Jinx Monsoon strut their stuff in Amsterdam after winning. The rise of Drag lingo was of the HOOK!

    Consider the slang you wrote down, Stolen .. Ahem I mean 'saved' in my vocabulary Haha!

    The language sounds too flamboyant for me. I know what it means. Anyone can figure it out but I just can't use it because I enjoy the English language as is and don't need to gay it up.
