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.
