Hook-Up App Scruff Introduces Multi-Language Gay Slang Dictionary


Yesterday, comedian Eliot Glazer broke down some of our favorite homosexual vernacular with disaffected charm.  Now that we’ve studied up on our English slang (#readingisfundamental) it’s time to try out some other languages.  Luckily, Scruff is here to help!

Everyone’s favorite alt-queer hook-up app has provided a new resource to help gay men find love, romance, or a last-minute booty call.  Whether you’re an oso, cachorro, or pellirojo (see what I did there? Spanish!) Scruff is here to help you break the language barrier.

With over 41 languages offered, it’s unavoidable that not all translations are word-for-word. Nonetheless, the Scruff team has done their best to provide accurate localizations of tricky turns-of-phrase.

Check out some of the useful translations, below:
