Language and Society are closely related to each other. It means that the forms of language can not be separated from that of the users of that language. Therefore, the choice of language types is much determined by the users because of the fact that the language variation is different from the young to the old, the businessmen and the teachers,the women and the men and so forth. This condition also happens to the community of gay, their community has their own language and they are also only understood by the members of their community. This Phenomenon is popularly known as slang, that is the choice of Word that us limitedly used by the gay community. From the obtained data that is thirty-three slangs, it is found out that the gay community use the slang words such as Angel Food, Basket Shopping, Beat, Bulldagger etc and these slang words have their own meaning which can be strictly understood by the members of gay community themselves. However, the formation of these slangwords, as a matter of fact are still able to guess from the basic formation of those slang words. For instance, the world slang vegetarian this word originally mean one who only consumes vegetable. However, then the slang vegetarian has a little bit different from the original word. Among the gay community this slang means that when a gay is named “vegetarian” it means that he does not want to do an oral sex because oral sex includes the lip containing of meat.
