Popular to contrary belief, B-Boy was a phrase invented by the gay community as long ago as the 1960's.
The saying "B-Boy" was slang for "Bottom-Boy" which was a discreat way of indicating someones sexuality (to the homosexual persuasion). Since the 60's this slang term (ironicly) became known as "break-boy" for breakdancing, however, both meanings still exist.
