This is the long-awaited sequel, by the same author, to “Baklese: Pinoy Pop Queer Dictionary,” which was the first dictionary of the colorful and imaginative Pinoy gayspeak. All the words in “Baklese Dos” are new and are not contained in the first volume. This is an indication of how quickly Filipino gayspeak is evolving.
“Baklese Dos” is both informative and entertaining. Its malicious humor tags a senior citizen as “tanderbolt lightning” and a “Wrangler with zipper.” “Baget,” a standard word in street Filipino, is given a new twist to mean “bakit?”. The English word, dilemma, means “madilim”, and “flower” means “tanga, engot”.
Irony turns “award-winning” to mean “napagalitan”, and “bombilya” to mean “tanga”. Whimsy makes the skin disease “buni” into “Boni Avenue” and “Botswana” into “boots”.
This update on Pinoy gayspeak is a must read for gays, straights, and those in-between of all ages.
