Proud to be LGBT campaign


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.

until i stumbled upon this post:  : The ‘Proud to be LGBT (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders)’ Campaign Network is a network of individuals and organizations based in the University of the Philippines, advocating protection of all Filipinos from discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

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

 

 

an embarassed ‘mariah carey’?


 

 

this one is for the books….

 

if youre not really familar with the lyrics of Mariah Carey’s single ‘Touch My Body’, you wont see the difference BUT for a fan like me,  youll know which part Mariah pulls out her claws in this worldwide promotion at ‘Good Morning America’

 

clue… watch the clip and watch as she glares at her back up singer towards the ending of the song.  The part where she sings ‘STOP SINGING MY PART’ is not really a part of the song but rather a backlash to her back-up singers.  I bet heads are rolling after the spectacle!!!

 

watch and weep…. and if you were on Mariah’s high heeled shoes….what will you do?  post your comments!

confessions of a Regine Velasquez fan


 

 

 

so what if they call me a ‘die-hard Regine fan’…i dont care…all i know is i love Regine Velasquez!

 

The same affection i have for Barbra Streisand, Mariah Carey and Julia Roberts.  Its funny that i often compare Regine with this three fabulous girls from Hollywood.  Regine has a bit of Barbra, Mariah and Julia all rolled into one.

 

But before i proceed, let me just straighten things up. im not the ‘extreme’ kind of fan wherein i have watched all of her major concerts nor has a collection of her pictures well hidden on my closet space.  I have a select few of her albums and videos (namely R2K and Retro for music while Ikaw Lamang Ang Mamahalin, Till I Met You, Pangrap Ko ang Ibigin Ka etc…leads my video collection).  i havent experienced to line up and wait for a long hours just to be able to get a seat inside her sunday TV show though i highly respect individuals who troops their way in every weekend just to meet OUR idol.  In fact, i havent watched any of her LIVE concerts but rather wait for it on the telly instead.  I figured that i may not be able to buy front row tickets and just be pissed off since i may not be able to see her front and center.

 

Regine for me deserves to be up in the pedestal for gay icons.  In fact, her life, triumphs and tragedies are the same dilema that a normal gay guy may or may have experienced. 

 

          struggled in the beginning as she reaches for her dreams. 

          often treated as an outcast before for her ‘provincial look’ till she finally been recognized with her sheer talent. 

          falling in love with the wrong person at the wrong moment in time, fought hard for her rights to love but admitted defeat in the end. 

          hibernated herself long enough till she finally fell in love all over again then finally getting the man she truly deserves. 

          she has grown from her simple native looks to an ultra fabulous fashionista…

 

Regine has truly proven that she is a force to reckon with that even the strongets typhoon cannot knock down a bamboo like her.

 

Like Barbra and Mariah, she sings like an angel and has expressed her self through the songs she sing.  how would you forget the song : ’cause you made me stronger by breaking my heart.  you ended my life and then a better one start.’  she was singing this song after her huge break up with ariel rivera.  it seems she just wanted to say that their chapter is already over and through this song, she wanted to shout into the whole world that she is free from the bondage of love with a family man.  i bet she also wants to let the wife know that the relationship is over between them. 

 

though there may be some issues with Mariah’s ill conceited remarks regarding ‘brown monkey and stuff’, Regine has truly proven herself not only through the music scene but as well in the film industry itself as she singlehandely generated millions of ticket sales for her movies.  (can you beat that Mariah…)

 

she should be given the ‘julia roberts of philippine cinema’ title.  true enough, like julia, she sticks from the character she grew accustomed with and made her famous (like ‘pretty woman’, ‘runaway bride’, ‘monalisa smile’, ‘notting hill’).  a character that solidifies her intergrity as a true ‘film star’.

 

but from all of her triumphs, she still remains to be level headed.  her feet still touches the ground and has high respect with hardwork.  have you ever seen her mall shows?  gawd, she wouldnt leave the venue until the very last of her fans get each albums signed.  she really respects her fans who made her one of the countrys most celebrated artist.

 

So now you know why I love Regine…and that is just the start on why I love Regine Velasquez.
