Learning Gay Lingo: A Starter Guide!

Nakakalurkey itech,neuro akesh , ay bongga  pak na pak! (I’m shocked, I’m blown away, and it’s extravagant and great.)

This LGBT speak or gay lingo is commonly known as BEKI SPEAK in the country. Terms can be used in everyday situation conversations. Gay lingo sometimes has an intimate conversation, to avoid people around them or protection for virgin ears.

In the Philippines, there is a long way to go for LGBT rights but still, the country is now paying its respect to the community.

The language is so confusing to hear when they talk too fast or use their language (BEKI WORDS). Here are some words to enlighten you.  

  • Indiana Jos, not the movie we watch. (Not showing up)

The Gay lingo has no rules, as long the construction of the words concerned its evolution to break their subculture.

Let hear some song the way the Gay sings

Bubukesh and flowerret, jojosok ang reyna na, shochurva ang chacha, pajempot jempo fah, Boom tiyayavush chenes

It’s a song written by a female group in the Philippines. It’s funny to hear, but it’s gay language.

Why do gays use gay speak at all?

It is fun to talk to gay. Their language is the source of their self-expression and self-affirmation. Their creations of words are less painful to hear. To call them Bakla, Bayot, Bading, etc., are all synonyms for the GAY.

In the end, a liberating space may be opened for gay people to share their longings and experiences. Would you not agree that life is lighter and more enjoyable when we have one gay friend in the group? Surely the laughter cannot be contained and everything is plain fun. 

Gay lingo is an interesting language that involves different ways to communicate and quite amusing. It is open to the gay community to speak about their own emotions and feelings and express their experiences. They are still human and need acceptance in this world we are living in. It’s a great feeling for the LGBT community and they will surely say.

Pak na pak! achieve na achieve bakla!
