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

WOW… this really makes me proud. Pero simulan ko muna siyempre sa kuwento kung bakit ako SSOOOOO PROOOOUUUUDDDD …
Dahil akala ko na-miss ko ang WHITE PRIDE this year, nag mega search ako sa aking FB kung sino ang pwede kong talakan dahil ni hindi man lang na-announce ng bongga sa sang-kabaklaan. Buti na lang at naurong daw ang event dahil nagmamaasim ang bagyong Falcon kaya di natuloy. Sa July 16 na raw ang White Pride kaya may time pa para mapagipunan at mapaghandaan ang araw na ito. TANDAAN: July 16, 2011 na po ang white pride. Yan ang official results ng Namfrel and Comelec.

Abay bongga talaga… natuwa ako sa gesture ng PROUD TO BE LGBT kaya i want this mission to be successful and re-posted it thru my FB account and thru this humble blog. I hope that everyone who reads this post will somehow re-post it thru their blog – straight or gay. I will try to ask some of my friends as well to pose for me and try my very best to contribute. I hope that we share the same message to everyone… i took the liberty to pose some pictures as an example for this great project
