Okay, so I just finished watching Please Like Me, an Australian gay-themed TV series, and I loved it! Karl started watching it so I joined him however I disliked it at first since I found the main character, Josh, egoistic and insensitive but things changed eventually (I don’t want to spoil) and I fell in love with it.
To give you a brief description about the series, it was produced by Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and ran from 2013-2016. Oh yes darlings, it ended already – and yeah it sucks! It wrapped up last 2016 and I just got to watch it this 2018. Though, I can say that it is still so relevant at this time. Additionally, Josh Thomas, who played as Josh, was also the creator, writer, and executive producer of the critically-acclaimed series. Continue reading “Please Like Me.”
Just this month, we heard about the news that Charice Pempengco is now Jake Zyrus. Dude, what an inspiration! You are standing up for yourself, your life, and your happiness – and nobody could stop you.

It is just very delightful to watch same sex love as the center of a series whether on television or online in these modern days. By that, same sex love is watched on many households thus proper understanding could blossom from there, resulting to widespread acceptance. Thought of homosexual relationship as total lust and sexual might be clear out now into what is truly larger – LOVE.
Alike to heterosexual relationships, there are uncertainties, awkwardness, and fears. Uncertain feelings if we really like the person or it’s just infatuation. Awkward moments during the getting-to-know and dating stages. And fear of losing the person due to mistakes, misunderstanding, differences, and destiny or God’s plan. However, most importantly, there are butterflies in the stomach, bravery, betterment, and inspiration.
My Husband’s Lover
This is the first gay-themed series I’ve ever watched and it happened to be a Filipino original. I am just so proud with GMA 7 after pulling off this first ever gay-themed teleserye in Philippine TV history. I followed this series from beginning up to the end during my college days when I haven’t even came out to my family yet. The story revolves around Vincent who is married to Lally and has two kids however Vincent is a closeted bisexual. Conflict and confusion arise when he and Eric, his high school lover, met again.

One way of showing to the world how LGBTs love each other is through the movies. Being fond of watching movies, movies that showcase same sex love is definitely a huge part of my movie checklist. I am very much amazed if real-life experiences, struggles, accomplishments in life and love of LGBTs are being portrayed.
Phi Chai or My Bromance revolves around two schoolboys named as Golf and Bank. Bank is the son of Golf’s father from another woman. These stepbrothers would eventually develop love for each other but conflict occurs when their parents get to know about their relationship.
This movie teaches us how to love without boundaries and fears.
In My Life
In My Life started with Shirley Templo, separated from her husband, who decided to move to New York after being dumped by her daughter Dang who plans to live in Australia. Shirley’s son Mark lives in New York with his boyfriend Noel. Problems arise when Mark and Noel started to deal with Shirley’s rude attitudes, Noel’s application for green card, and Mark getting sick.
This movie teaches us the importance of chances and changes we make in our lives. Continue reading “6 LGBT and Proud Movies”
Sino kaya ang gaganap na Reyna Avria ng Etheria? Nitong linggo ay muling binuhay ni Ether ang dating reyna, at panigurado ay marami na ang nagpupustahan kung sino ba talaga ang gaganap dito.
Sa episodes ng Encantadia na pinapakita si Avria, nahihirapan akong hulaan kung sino ba talaga ang artista kahit na hindi naman ganon kabigat ang make-up at prosthetics nito.

ATTENTION: LGBT peeps and heteros as well! Thinking of going out tonight? Are you looking for a place where you can express your sexuality and be comfortable being happy and gay? Or are you straight who wants to explore new places and get drunk in a new environment?
Well, here are the 4 places that I could suggest which are either built for gay people or have gay-friendly atmosphere. Plus, due to my great night out experiences and cute guys who frequent them (if you’re looking for a good aura hehe).

Today X Future
Today X (as me and my friends call it because it’s near from Cubao X) is a resto-bar and art gallery at the same time. They have artworks, music records, and books that you can view inside the place. There is a Cubao X shop-which-sells-vintage-items feels when you enter the place. They also feature artists with their art collection once in a while. It’s kind of small inside though they also set tables and chairs outside. Hippie customers frequent this place.

O Bar Divas. Photo from my gallery.
O Bar has been the go-to place for 11 years of many gay patrons if they want to drink and party. I always end up having an awesome night in this bar because of the drag performers, ledge dancers, and great crowd. The drag performances are the best here in Manila plus the ledge dancers are all hot and handsome. You will get to meet new sets of people as well who are nice and fun to be with, that is if you are friendly and open for socialization. Yuppies and celebrities frequent this place.
