You're referring to a language called 'Gayle', which has been studied by linguists and recorded. A dictionary of Gayle has also been published: "Gayle - the language of kinks and queens; a history and dictionary of gay language in South Africa", by Ken Cage, published in 2003 by Jacana. A fascinating and fun read.
We do hear Gayle, spoken predominantly by the gay community living in the Cape Flats.
For more info on Gayle you can contact the Gay & Lesbian Archives, based at Wits, on (011) 717 4239.
