GAY-2-ZEE: A Dictionary of Sex, Subtext, and the Sublime

<< Previous in General Interest Next in General Interest >>

Price: $16.95
Item Number: 82116
If you've ever wanted to know the origins of the gay meaning of the word "pansy," the slang term "Twink(ie)," or the phrase, "Mary, don't ask," then  girlfriend, you're in luck. Gay-2-Zee is the absolute go-to-guide (don't call us anything as dull as a dictionary) for all things said from a queer perspective.
 
Lavishly illustrated in two-color throughout, Gay-2-Zee explores the gay dialect in twenty-six sections (one for each letter of the alphabet) with entries that include definitions, provenance and which section of the gay community is most likely to use the term.
 
Gay-2-Zee compellingly makes the case that language, especially a vernacular born out of secret, coded communication, can tell a provocative and enlightening tale of turmoil, compassion and fortitude of the history of homosexuals -- all done with plenty of laughs.
