1. Nondescript language used between gays who are partially out of the closet, to avoid suspicion. Often involves a lot of gender-neutral pronouns and unspecific common nouns.

2. Mutual understanding that semi-closeted gays who are out to each other do their best to conceal the sexual orientation of the other, or, at the very least, does not force the other out of the closet.
(In gay code)

Gay #2: Nope, and that's the worst part, isn't it.

The unwritten, unspoken code of homosexuals that any homosexual is willing to have sexual relations with any other homosexual, regardless of how attractive he or she is. This may be due to the fact that are smaller amounts of homosexuals than heterosexuals in the human population, so they "take what they can get."

The code is more prominent and visible within the male homosexual community, but homosexual females also abide by it. The lack of visibility in the female group may be due to the natural instinct of all women to be uptight, bitchy, illogical, and almost always unintelligent.
