Fabeness to the Fantabulosa Fairy

A Church of England theological college trainee priests held a service in the antiquated gay slang language Polari to commemorate LGBT history month.  Polari originated in Victorian London but fell out of use as homosexuality began to be decriminalised in England in the 1960s.  The translation was based on the Polari bible, a work compiled as a project in 2003 by the self-styled Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.  “Glory be to the father, and to the son, and the Holy Spirit" the prayer offered was: "Fabeness be to the Auntie, and to the Homie Chavvie, and to the Fantabulosa Fairy".
