    Actually, “Chueca” doesn’t mean that in Spain; the word is an “americanismo.” The neighborhood is actually named for a Spanish composer, Federico Chueca.

  • Sol Invictus

    I don’t know about Chueca’s history but the Royal Spanish Academy does define “chueca” as not straight (well, it is literally defined as “torcida” in 2/4 of its meanings but it can be translated as bent or something like that).

    I’m not saying the word doesn’t mean “not straight,” I’m saying that the word isn’t used in Spain. If you look at the definition you mention, you’ll see all the entries are marked as specific to Latin American countries.

    @MikeE: Ew, those abs are gross.

    His abs are better than mine, so I probably can’t criticize. Otherwise, Spanish guys are HOT!

  • Roxorz

    @Barca: @MikeE: I love abs but those are a little TOO tight. >_<

    Aquarelle are you from Spain?

  • Sol Invictus

    @Aquarelle: Ah, point taken then.

    From the article you can’t tell, but Spain has had gay marriage for years.
