kiki

noun; other word formation type creative formation
American slang term “kiki” [pronounced "kee kee"], a general term used when gay men laugh, giggle or joke around with one another.
 
"Girl, we’re supposed to be getting ready but this has somehow turned into a kiki."
Etymology : The contemporary use of “kiki” as it relates to humor may originate with the French translation, meaning “to choke” or “to throttle.” Possibly related: many drag queens also use the term “gag” or “gagging” when something excites, impresses or overwhelms them. The term ”kiki” may also relate to the drag & ball scene when young people take part in an event called a “Kiki Ball.”
