Trade also known as chow  is a gay slang term which refers to the casual partner of a gay man or to the genre of such pairings. Historically the motivations may at times include a desire for emotional fulfillment and admiration, but the term often refers to a straight man who partners with a gay man for economic benefit, either through a direct cash payment or through other, more subtle means gifts, tuition payments, etc.
Often, the terms trade and rough trade are treated as synonymous.
