Xochipilli is the god of flowers, dance, beauty, and art in Aztec mythology. He is also called Flower Prince because his name can be split from two Nahuatl words, xochitl meaning flower and pilli meaning prince. Xochipilli was also a god of fertility and associated with gender-variance and same-sex eroticism. Xochipilli was seen as the patron of MSM (men who have sex with men), which may have resulted from his associations with Toltec civilization. (Aztecs viewed the Toltecs as their predecessors).
