Modern Gay Slang Deciphered by “Older Gay Men”

A hilarious video featuring three self proclaimed “older gay men,” as they attempt to navigate and decipher younger generation’s modern slang has gone viral across the internet and social media.

The three men who chuckle and get confused over the terms “Bussy,” “Bop,” “Beat for the Gods,” “Extra,” “F#ck My Drag Right,”  “Gayby,” “Gayce,” “Yasss,” “Kiki,” and “Werk,” also learn about “Miss Vanjie” from “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

“Is my gay card gonna be taken away because I don’t watch RuPaul?” one man asked.

Despite, not being able to decipher the vast majority of slang, the men did connect with the term “slay,” … “I still use it,” one man explained.

“Are we living in a different world? We feel dumb,” another man says at the end.
