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.
It is the final week for “My Husbands Lover”. And I bet the whole gay community are awaiting the conclusion of the great love triangle between Vincent, Lally and Eric.
Who would have thought that a gay-themed soap opera would finally see a day when it will be telecast on a Philippine television wherein Roman Catholic remains the primary religion in a local setting? The country aside from Vatican has remained strong with its core family values and has yet to acknowledge divorce as a “law”. Never in a million years that I would have imagined two guys as main character and lovely young lady as the third wheel. So kudos to its writer/developer Suzette Doctolero and the master director himselfDominic Zapata who brings in to life the saga of three intertwined souls from the web of deceit, love, machismo, society and sexual orientation.
The soap wont be successful as it is without its stellar cast spearheaded by Ms Carla Abellana (as Lally),Dennis Trillo (as Eric) and the phenomenal star Tom Rodriguez (as Vincent) who found new success with its new network (GMA 7).
So again, congratulations to the makers of“My Husbands Lover”.
Marami ang kinilig… marami ang napatili pero hindi dahil si Sharon at si Gabby ay nagkabalikan – at dahil next to impossible na mangyari yun, friend. Tumitili sina nanay, ate, tita at maging ang mga mga kapanalig ko sa pananampalataya with matching back twist at cart wheel pa dahil sa bagong love team na talagang namang sinusubaybayan sa GMA7. Walang iba kundi ang…
OPO… hashtag na natin ang #TOMDEN love affair. Phenomenal talaga ang popularidad ng dalawa. Ewan ko ba pero ang lakas naman talaga nang chemistry ni Dennis Trillo at Tom Rodriguez. Ebidensiya ba kamo… eto ang naglalawa kong sagot dyan…
kitam pati ikaw muntik nang tumili sa mga moments captured in pictures. Plus di mo maitatangi na andami talagang tagahanga at nanonood ng phenomenal
The newest gay-themed soap opera in the Philippines from GMA7 has been slamming network rating war against its biggest rival ABS CBN. The rival network has mastered heavy drama soaps which tickles love fantasy between the rich and poor while GMA7 may have engineered the fantaserye and korea-novela phenomenon that up until this time has been emulated by other networks but has never surpassed. GMA7 also had suffered long-time lull from the rating game since its core creative team and its artist were ‘pirated’ by two giant networks – namely ABS CBN and TV5. Though the latter network may have spent millions from their current talents, but it failed to bring in the much needed ratings and advertisement pull. No one thought that GMA7 has the guts to produce such show with its family-oriented theme that is evident in every soap they created.
Tagged by GMA7’s marketing and publicity department “Ang pinakamapangahas na teleserye ng taon”. True to its by-line, the soap stirred local aficionados curiosity and rocks CBCP’s sensibility to the topic. There was a time that I thought that it won’t even last for a month as the church demanded its pull-out from the mainstream media. The local governing agency MTRCB has been democratic enough to hear both sides of the story. The soap has been in ‘hot-seat’ since its inception cutting scenes after scenes which they viewed to be ‘indiscreet’.
But after a month of airing and thousands of tweets from its fans, the soap emerges triumphant. Its three main actors: Carla Abellana, Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo found new fame with this new dramatic vehicle. Raves and reviews from fans and critics flooded the cyber world. Its supporting cast led by Glydel Mercado, Kuh Ledesma, Chanda Romero, Roi Vinzon, Karel Marquez, Kevin Santos, Victor Basaand the list goes on were also added to the mix. Truly an inspiring masterpiece from Direk Dominic Zapata and head writer Suzette Doctolero. Not to mention a string a creative writers including Marlon Miguel, Geng Delgado, Jason Lim, Jonathan Cruz and Michelle Amog. Splendid cinematography byRoman Theodossis.
I just hoped that this opus from GMA7 is the start of new and inspiring telenovelas and it reemergence from its long sleepover. I just hope as well that the marketing team of GMA7 would somehow use this vehicle to create new and exciting products including music and merchandize. I just don’t know what GMA record has been doing so far with such hug clamor over MHL’s mall show. Why did they not come up with a compilation of sorts dedicated for MHL? I know Carla Bellona is a non-singer but there are a lot of songs under their catalogue which are 100% owned by the recording company. It may not be aired during the soaps telecast but at least recurring theme about love, letting and betrayal will be a great marketing tool. Hooray to GMA films as they are already conceptualizing a film solely based to the three main characters of the soap. I just hoped that they come up with the right idea while they are still airing MHL. It may not be the same plot but the lobbying on the same theme. Why not a HORROR / SUSPENSE THRILLER for Dennis, Tom and Carla?
Anyway I’m just happy for GMA7’s success as I have been a huge fan of the network. May ebidensiya naman sa lahat ng post ko di ba….
i have heard a lot of stories kung saan saan nakipag hadahan ang kakilala kong local parlorista na nagmamanicure sa may kanto ng Lardizabal and Dela Fuente. I cant believe his/her stories but i bet lahat nang yun ay may katotohanan kahit “makipag-face to face” man ako kay Tsang Amy. Sa likod ng dyip, sa masikip na eskinita, sa gasolinahan at panigurado ko hindi kaya ang isang araw para magbigay pa lang ng halimbawa.
Pero this one takes the crown…with matching evidence pa for ‘show cause’. Isang araw habang ako ay nag-FB gamit ang daring kong account page – eto ang aking nasilayan… blow job sa isang kiddie ride. har! har! har!
‘i want to hold your hands’ Glee version is one of the best renditions i have ever heard so far. The powerful voice and superb performance of Kurt Hummel indeed crave me for more.
Naka-relate ako sa pinagdadaanan ni Kurt on this episode kasi i lost both of my parents so far. Ulilang lubos na nga kumbaga. And ang relationship ko to my father of me being gay is somehow in a gray area since he never knew that im GAY even from when he finally said ‘goodbye’.
the lyrics and how he delivered it is something i never had done and how i wish nagawa ko when he was still living. But i know somehow he may have been proud of me kahit na bading ako. You see, dalawa lang kami and ako ang nag-iisang lalaki na anak niya. Plus, i’m the only boy amongst the last generation ng family namin. Lahat kasi ng pinsan ko eh babae and ako na lang sana ang DAPAT na magpapalaganap sana ng family name namin. I feel na im a huge disappointment sa sarili ko and sa buong family..somehow.
Di ko na fulfill ang obligation ko to my parents but i hopw that i somehow make up for it since i single handedly support my sister and her four kids since my brother in law left them. I may not be able to deliver and hopefully give what they want pero i hope all my sacrifices for my family is enough for them to be proud of me.
I just hoped that i can tell my father that i do love him as well kahit na di ako yung pinangarap nilang maging anak.
Its true. .. Its a known fact that several STRAIGHT GIRLS falls in love with GAY MEN.
I should know since … i know some of them. She might be your neighbor, classmates, co-worker or your girl friends who happens to fall in love with you. GOD … please give me strength to finish this post.
Right… i know your head nods and a smile slowly appears on those pretty lips. It sounds familiar… hmmmm
I dont know why this STRAIGHT GIRLS tend to peak the ‘darnest’apple amongst a basket full of dudes. I mean, you can be friends with gay guys… you can be their fag hags for eternity but why do you have to put them in a pedestal and adore him. YOu should know that ‘friendship’ is all he can offer since he has a crush on the guy who is sitting beside you.
Its like a flu … or addiction as one of my friends told me. It just kept on getting stronger each time she saw him. Its the kind of addiction that you cant stop and kept on finding for more. Unexplainable by local Science that grew stronger and stonger with just one sniff of his ‘designer’ perfume.
You know that you will NEVER ever get to the kiss that you always wanted.
I cant blame these girls. GAY GUYS are a step higher than a STRAIGHT GUY.
We take a bath almost twice a day. Loves fashion, perfume of all sorts. Love to watch the same chick flick you always wanted to see which your boyfriend calls ‘sucker film’. We love shopping and adores our pet dogs. We know the newest hair product in the market and which lotion works for your skin tone. Hygiene is a priority and we listen to all of your problems. We love to sing the same sappy love songs you love to squeal while your boyfriend lambasted your eardrums with the rock tunes he were raving at. We laugh on the same freakin jokes and cry in every life’s issue that we have to face. We take good care of our skin and tried to sculpt our body to perfection while an average straight guy stops to look in the mirror when he finally snatched ‘YES’ out from those supple lips. He just simply forget maintaining a body he should have had while his belly starts to STRETCH from 30 to 45 and simply dismiss it as ‘love handles’. WTF!!!!!! Have you seen your ‘DING-DONG’ lately????
They wont create QUEER GUYS FOR STRAIGHT GUYS for nothing. If straight guys could really take good care of themselves.
I guess, its a mental case and i hope that STRAIGHT GIRLS would snap out from delusional fairy tale that someday Romeo will climb up the ladder and reach for your hand since HE is all set in a journey with HIS own prince charming… while riding a white horse. (sweeeeettttt)
what are your thoughts dear readers…feel free to poke me.
Gays often surf the net for one purpose: finding a mate.Almost everyone I know is trying to find the inevitable ‘better half’ (even guys who are committed are trying their luck as well).I guess in cyberspace, you can be whoever you wanted to be.We create a make believe persona – a persona who we would wanted to be if we have had the chance.
A make believe fantasy off from the pages of a magazine – macho, matikas, matangkad, dark, drop dead gorgeous, 6-pack abs, shiny white teeth, blue eyes, flawless, mala-Adonis na physique.
Profile pictures were enhanced to its utmost aesthetic standard – from adobe to corel. We even pose neither tilted nor trying to show off our ‘tool’.Guys who have the body show off their chest and abs and guys who have looks focus on their selling points.
ANG HIRAP MAGING BADING DI BA!
My straight friends often told me that being gay is FUN.Well, hindi pa nila nararamdaman to live a life of a gay guy.Mabuti pa ang straight – practical.As long as they knew that the guy can give the life she dreamed of in the future, ok na.But in the gay world, aside from the fact that you should be successful financially, you should also have jaw-dropping good looks and a body to die for.Ang hanap talaga ay si SUPERMAN.
I’m now 29 and i am joining the 30’s bandwagon soon.Maturity has been honed and age seems to be slapping my forehead.My hair is thinning on top and my belly is earning a millimeter or two.It’s hard to shed of those baby fats at this point of time as they seem to stay in your skin for the rest of your life.In short, hindi ako yung tipo nila.
Mahaba ang baba
My tummy is bigger than my chest.In short parang bubuli…
Hindi masyadong flawless
No money to show off
Hayyyy buhay!!!!So I learned to admit the fact and try to embrace reality.Having a lover, boyfriend, lifetime partner (whatever you may define it) ONLY belongs to cover boys and the rich guys.For people like me, well mag-tiyaga na lang magmasid and mangarap.So to fight the sadness I feel in my heart most especially in a rainy day like this, I admitted the fact that I may not have the relationship i have been longing for.
If only these guys could learn to see beyond the tapestry of aesthetics and look closely to thy heart.A heart who would love them faithfully until that time comes when they are no longer beautiful or ‘delicious’ in the eye of their followers.When they start to feel that gravity takes its toll and all their precious parts are falling one after another.
A guy, like me, who will continue holding their hand till eternity,A guy like me who would still feel the luckiest guy in the face of the earth every morning when you feel vulnerable.Every morning wherein no additional frill, no perfume, no make-up and ONLY nature’s gift are plastered all over.
A guy, like me, who would look in thy eyes and utter ‘I love you’ even if a wrinkle starts to ruin thy pretty face.
