IN honour of the premiere of HBO’s Looking, openly-gay comedian Eliot Glazer has posted a video on YouTube looking at certain slang words and catch phrases that have become popular within the gay community.

In the video, Glazer he walks viewers through his Reluctant Gay Dude’s Guide to Modern Gay Vernacular.

While some of the slang does not really exist in Australian English in general, a lot of the words can be heard within the Australian gay sub-culture. Nonetheless, readers have nothing to fear as Star Observer will not be featuring any headlines containing phrases like “hot mess” or “fierce” any time in the future.

Enjoy the Video:
