Reader Kiko who has just recently come to terms with his homosexuality writes Migs, asking for possible people whom he can “share views and find some kind of support, (…) those who have maintained this kind of lifestyle in the closet.” You may want to play Ate Charo or Mel Tiangco to our dear reader, ka-MGG, Kiko.
Happy new year to you! Thanks for doing podcasts and enlightening us on different issues. I was moved by your podcast on coming into terms with the fact that one isn’t straight – that one is gay. I recently turned 25 and also recently ‘came in’…
I’m very discreet and I keep people guessing about my true colors. I have a close gay friend who is comfortable touching my body and attests to his friends that I don’t have a single gay bone in my body (quoting “HE’s sooo straight” – akala lang niya). I chose not to come out to him; due to my personal preference of non-scene people and trust issues.
I have another gay friend who’s my support and quite protective of me – ayaw niya na mag-out ako based on his assessment of my situation (family situation, career/potential, think Rob the investment banker of Avenue Q) and on my personal assessment, I agree with him .
Thing is, I want to meet people in the same predicament but I know it’s like finding a needle in a haystack… I just want to try and share views and find some kind of support from those who have maintained this kind of lifestyle in the closet. I’ve tried looking online but it’s been very difficult… or maybe I’ve been looking in the wrong direction.
Just wanted to hear your views and maybe if you have any leads on any jedi knights who’d want to have a paduwan…
