Origin: China, Weibo
Meaning: Man who behaves in a fancy way, somebody who’s effeminate or who acts like a queer chap.
It looks like this word is exclusively connected with homesexuality but, in fact, it’s not only this. This word is used to describe any man who acts in a peculiar way, who’s not direct and who’s, on the contrary, pretty mistifying. A flatterer, a queer chap. He’s effeminate.
Need to know: You can use this word in two different situations:
1- When somebody behaves like a gay
2- When somebody behaves like a woman
In Use: “这个人gay里gay气的” (This man is too “gayligayqi”)
“怎么这么突然gay里gay气的！” （What happened? Why you suddenly turned so “gayligayqi”!)
Interesting things: Watch the drama “不一样的美男子” and you’ll better understand what “gay里gay气” means!
