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

We’ve been drooling over this two hunks merged by a phenomenal gay soap opera that finally will bade goodbye to local boob tube as it counts down its final week – the Tom Rodriguez – Dennis Trillo love team that we’ve been gushing for more than 4 months now.
Who would have thought that they will even remain for at least a month and has been extended numerous times due to public clamor? No one knew!
It’s a first in the local telly that a whole country has gone gaga over two straight guys with their gay character at the highly successful soap “My Husbands Lover”. I’m just so happy that these two actors which I adore so much who gambled with their careers to bring in to life the characters of Vincent and Eric has been reaping success since from the start. They had proven that gay characters are no longer a hindrance towards success. Hoping to see Tom and Dennis in the local television and cinema.
