An oft maligned term used to describe the deliciously complicated, emotionally rich relationship (albeit platonic...well sometimes...see "fag hag shag") that exists between a gay man and a heterosexual woman (occasionally a "made lesbian". Let's not forget the "made lesbians"! It took a long painful journey for us to arrive at this final destination, so let's savor the vicarious shout out in this definition.) The fag hag relationship is so synergistic and perfect that it should serve as the utopian model for all heterosexual relationships. Ideal characteristics include but are not limited to: unconditional love and understanding, unflinching honesty, and let's not forget fidelity and abject loyalty (oops, the chip that is missing in all heterosexual males.) One never has to worry about a gay man "cheating" on his fag hag. To the contrary, the fag hag is the emotional complement to a gay man's psyche (aside from a gay man's mother-either dead or alive.) Benefits include: tutorials in haute couture, interior decorating and party-planning as well as personal tips on beauty and grooming (every woman could use a personal stylist now and then!) While the pitfalls are few, the fag hag must invest a great deal of time and energy digesting the personal (sometimes all too personal!?) details of her gay man's sex life, whilst not possessing a fulfilling and enriching sex life of her own, or one at all! But it's all worth the time and effort expended as the rewards are great in nature and kind-an enduring partnership that is rooted in mutual respect and love (and let's not forget-it's NON-JUDGMENTAL.)
"As Dorothy, John's fag hag, gently caressed his sweaty brow as he lie quietly whimpering in the ER after a left testicle manual detorsion, she sweetly whispered in his ear, "I told you to lay off the Lazy Susan."

Slang for a heterosexual female who is constantly around gay men and most of her closest friends are gay males.
Doesn't Joanne know that the odds of finding a boyfriend are pretty much nil if all she does is hang around Tommy and his entourage all the time. She truly is the biggest fag hag that I have ever known. ally bff
