Language involves new words. New words that are created and others disappear. The words or phrases currently used by gays. Gay speak is the most unstoppable and malleable of all languages. Therefore, gay lingo is deemed important for posterity reasons. They maybe use as reference or as aids in understanding the meaning of future literature material written today. The use of gay lingo was first used to avoid having other people hear what you are talking about, especially when it comes to sex. This also means of having defying to their own. Gay speak involve really fast, with obsolete words and phrases being rewritten and replaced especially when non-gays learn what it means.

Having a diversity of words in both Tagalog and English language you can now create a gay lingo word. Some gay lingo derives from celebrities, dialects, trademark brands, Spanish and Japanese terms which give a lot new meaning. Normally non-gay could not easily understand the gay lingo list of words, due to it is just for homo-sexual. It was born when the homo-sexual tries to be respect and being recognize by non-gays. It was a form of defense mechanism, that if they are always been the different among other so they build their own language that matches to their own society.
