Gay Gay Homosexual Gay or I Can Still Hear His Voice is a catchphrase often paired with images of characters from popular media, in which one character reminisces another character mocking them. Starting on Tumblr in 2018, the meme gained popularity in January 2021 and spread to other platforms. Members of various online fandoms – particularly LGBTQ+ communities – use the meme to create fan art and poke fun at ships or general relationships between characters.
On November 19, 2018,  account relateablepicturesofyuugi shared an edited panel from the manga series Yu-Gi-Oh!. In the panel foreground, the character Yugi Muto remembers the character Pharaoh Atem, saying, „I can still hear his voice…“ In the edited background, Atem says, „Gay gay homosexual gay,“ creating the impression that the memory of Atem is mocking Yugi. The post received more than 630 notes in less than three years (shown below).

Members of various fandoms began sharing imaginary dialogue between characters within their respective media.

The post received more than 20,000 likes and 4,900 retweets in less than two months (shown below, left).
