A derogatory slang term for lesbian (adjective or noun). Shortened from the word "lesbian," which is derived from the name of the island of Lesbos (Lésvos).
The word lesbo is insulting, so don't use it.

believe it or not, an island in Greece. This island gave birth to the term "Lesbian" because of Sappho's poetry about woman love.

However, just because a girl was born on the island doesn't make her a lesbo. That would make the island like an endless fountain of lesbians... which, to be honest, sounds pretty hot in word.

Jake: "Have you been in Lesbos?"
John: "OH YEAH. Oh, wait you meant the island..."

This is a district under the government of a prefect (or prefecture) in Greece. It's made up of a number of islands in the Aegean Sea.

According to Greek mythology, the god of the islands was called 'Lesbos.'

An ancient poet called Sappho wrote about love between women about 2700 years ago and that's where we get the term 'lesbian' from.

Apparently, Sappho's poetry was pretty hot stuff and the Christians didn't like it. Little of it remains today thanks to a policy of it being destroyed by those against it.
Greek 1: "Behold! Across the Aegean sail the lovers Clitus Enormos and Vulva Maximus from the islands of Lesbos!"
Greek 2: "I'm hard as a temple pillar already!"

a Greek island located in the northeastern Aegean Sea. People from lesbos are called lesbians.

"The word lesbian is derived from the poems of Sappho, born in Lesbos, which contain powerful emotional content directed toward other females and have frequently been interpreted as expressing homosexual love."
That gurl lives in lesbos.
