flamer

a derogatory slur for homosexuals chiefly used in the United States of America that shares its meaning and origin with the highly-divisive term faggot used against effeminate men. However, the term has also been reclaimed; and is used by flamboyant, out-and-proud effeminate men. Also used as flaming (e.g. a flaming gay).
