Slang term

Hella is most frequently used on the west coast of the United States.

Hella, essentially a combination of "hell of," is used most frequently as shorthand for "a large amount," or "to an extreme degree.

When combined with "gay," (naturally the american slang version of "gay") it is generally used to convey one of four meanings and is largely context dependent.
1: Express extreme displeasure. Usually in reference to a person, object, or event.

Upon performing poorly in a class: "My _____ professor is hella gay."

2: Convey the degree to which someone is homosexual

Upon hearing your professor remark about their homosexual relationship: "My _____ professor is hella gay."

3: Convey that something was very adorable, or sweet/thoughtful:

In reference to a small puppy, frolicking happily through a field of flowers: "Aww, that puppy is hella gay."

Upon reading a welcome love letter: "Oh my god (insert name) this letter is hella gay."
