Difficult to cure and highly infectious, this is glitter that travels from person to person after even minimal contact. Usually originates from some kind of queer craft activity involving glitter or glittered clothing and accessories. A great number of queer people, particularly gay men, catch and spread glerpes.

Usually transmitted by hugging, cuddling, or just being really gay. A portmanteau of glitter and herpes.

The mixture of glitter and herpes found on any number of individuals. This term speaks to the oddly high incidence at which glitter and herpes occur together. Glitter and herpes alone have a small probability of being present on any sole person. However, the probability that the second occurs when the first is present is almost a statistical certainty.
Person 1: "Dude that stripper is so hot!
Person 2 She has glitter all over her man.
Person 1 Wtf does that have to do with anything?
Person 2 The glerpes... You can't be too careful
Person 1: Good catch...
