Maricon, maricone -Latino English and Spanish

Spanish term for gay man, mostly derogatory, but occassionally used affectionately between gay men. Also used as a derogatory word for tranvestites.

See for examples.

This term was emailed to me by Dan Blocker, who observed the lack of 'culturally inclusive' euphemisms in my collection. He sent several terms originally used by African American and Latino communities in the US.
