#pride2017 : reminder to #gaymillenials – #RESPECT



Why do we celebrate #pridemonth ?
Hit back by asking “straight people should be thankful they don’t need one”. The #pride month roots back from the oppressive Civil Rights Movement. There were “Annual Reminder” marches as early as 1965, which were meant to be a public reminder that the #LGBT community didn’t enjoy the same basic civil rights as other people. But the watershed moment of the modern pride movement is widely considered the #Stonewall Riots. In the 1960s, due to laws prohibiting public sexuality, there were limited options for #queer folk and raids of #gay and #lesbian establishments were common.

During 80s and early 90s, the only local gay icon I know is Pacifica Falayfay. Dolphy’s iconic performance has ticked the Filipino gay character as #parlorista with a heart of gold. Though his moving performance has paved the way to bring #LGBTQ issues, there is more to #gaylife aside from what I see in theaters.

I stand strongly to my sexuality and if #millenialpink does not understand our #hugot due to”generation gap”… then let me simply say …
You won’t enjoy the #liberty to shout out your feelings to the world without the #thunderbeki who fought for you basic rights to #love and #expressyourself . #respect 

Nuff said.

#LESSON101: how to know if #beki ba ang #boyfie mo?


In a relationship ka girl for 100 years, 10 months, 2 weeks and 3 days.  Ganyan na katagal ang relasyon mo sa long time boyfriend mo na hanggang ngayon ay nilulumot na ang katagang “will marry this year” sa quotable quotes dyan sa “new years to-do lis” mo.

Nagkaboyfriend na si mommy dionisia, may anak na si jolina at ikakasal na si marian pero hanggang ngayon eh wala pa ring proposal sa prince charming mo.  Sari saring pagpapasaring na nga ata ang ginawa mo kay kuya pero talagang ang pagiging manhid yata ay nananalaytay sa kanyang veins, mare!!?!.

Pero baka naman wala sayo ang problema? Baka naman ang boyfriend mo ay may berdeng dugo.  In short… BADING.

Pero paano nga ba malalaman kung bading ang boyfriend mo? Ilalabas ko na ang tawas at tatawasin na natin ang kasintahan mo.

Uumpisahan natin sa choice of music ni kumpare.  Yup… pwedeng mahuli ang dalagang bukid sa piling ng musika.  Ito ang lima sa tip ko bago ka magharakiri dahil sa haba ng pasakalye ko…

Kandirit.. kandirit…

1. Tingnan mo ang music collection nya.  Kung sina mareng Mariah, Celina, Barang, Regine at sari saring biritera ang precious collection na nakadisplay sa music cabinet nya eh magisip isip ka na.  Ate… yung nagiisang album ni eminem does not count lalo na kung nabuo nya ang album collection ni Britney Spears.  May tawag dyan… #InDenial.

2. Mas kabisado nya pa ang lyrics ng “saving all my love for you” by whitney huston kesa sayo with matching giling ala Mariah pag kinekembelar nya sa karaoke ang minus one na pinasikat ng mga drag queen sa malate.

3. Sa natural speaking voice ng dyowa mo eh parang naghuhukay ng 6 ft pag nagsasalita pero pag nagsimula ng kumanta eh sapilitan nyang binibirit ang mga kantang “fantasy”, “all this time” at “when you believe” na parang naipit ang betlog sa pagitan ng dalawang naguumpugang upo.

4. “We are family”, “i will survive”, “dancing queen”, “single ladies” and “hiding inside myself” ang ilan sa mga favorites sa kanyang playlist.  Wag kang maniniwala na ang kapatid nyang babae ang parating nakikinig sa ipod shuffle nya.  Lalong lalo na kung alam mo namang puro lalake ang mga kapatid nang dyowa mo.

5. Poster ng “one direction” ang nakabandera sa kwarto ng boyfriend mo.  Isama mo pa isang album na punong puno ng mga KPOP pictures.  Try mong halughugin ang gallery ng android phone nya.  Makikita mo ang album ni Lee Min Ho.
