There was some HK movie that translated (read: transliterated) gigolo as something like 基哥儿龙(音).

I cannot find anything online with different combinations of characters for ji-ger-long.

Any ideas what the phrase was?

  • Hmmm do you mean this one? 鴨王 (The Gigolo).

  • @Stan I believe it's in 八星报喜 actually.

If it is a Hong Kong movie, it is likely in Cantonese

is transliteration of 'gay'


[5] (Cantonese slang only) phonetic translation of "gay" i.e. male homosexual e.g. 搞基,



It is common to address a man with a suffix "哥", e.g. 晶哥 [zing1 go1*4], 叻哥 [lek1 go1*4].*

remember 犀利哥?

a gigolo, a male sex worker

牛郎 is a male sex worker (serving older female mostly)

基哥牛郎 most likely refers to 'male sex worker (specialized in serving male clients)'
