Thanks so much! I have one more question

Resolved Question:

Thanks so much! If it's not too much trouble, I have one more question. How would a guy say to another guy, "Andrew is sad because we are not gay?" I know that sounds odd, but my two guy friends are in an online debate right now. Again, this would be in Spanish addressed towards a Mexican. HA HA! Thanks!!!

Hi again, and you're most welcome!

Thanks very much for requesting me and for your Excellent rating on the other question; it is greatly appreciated! Laughing

Yes, I can help you with this one, too.

"Andrew is sad because we are not gay"---Andrés está triste porque no somos gay.

'Gay' is also used in Spanish to mean 'gay' in English, but 'homosexual' can also be used. In Mexican Spanish, 'maricón' is a slang, derogatory expression to mean a gay or effeminate man. In this sentence it would be 'maricones', because it applies to two people, so all translations would be appropriate.

I hope this helped.
