Manila Gay Guy

Exchanging emails with Palma Tayona, the artist, I grabbed this part of his message that I thought is a beautiful testament to the community that has formed around MGG, the site. I have always thought that the value of this blog is more in the exchange of ideas in the comments section, rather than in my actual posts. So, really, this testament is for all of you dear loyal readers, for all of you who share your thoughts and opinions here… mabuhay kayo!

Dear Migs,

…your site has provided a venue to put ideas and comments that relate and affect us as gay people. It is good to see different voices speaking out and giving their thoughts. Regardless of belief, inclination, desire and purpose, we are all men of the gentler persuasion bearing the same problems of discovering ourselves, finding our own self truths, living the same culture of loving/ liking/ desiring other men, and basically, just simply trying to survive with our lives with respect, dignity and purpose.

Being gay has many different colors. It is addressed in a myriad of terms. And that is where the beauty of being gay/ straight-acting/ butch/ effem/ bisexual/ transgender/ lesbian/ closeted/ blah-blah-blah lies. It’s in our plurality. It makes the world a little bit more exciting to live in every day. It creates balance.

    i couldn’t resist and i have to quote someone above when he said “…makes it easy for PLU be in one-cute-gay-open-
    circle…” hahaha, sorry pero natawa ako sa image na nabuo sa isip ko.

    either it’s one huge choo-choo train orgy or a there’s a Maypole in the middle of a big circle of naked/half-naked gay men with olive branches on their heads and miggs is on top of that pole wearing ala-cupid like toga while playing a harp.

    this comment really made my morning. hahaha… cheers!

    i take a little offence to that “gentler persuasion” part. kind of stereotypical.

    jimg29, may karapatan na may censorship dito. Ang MGG stands for “world peace”, hindi uncensored, hard-hitting bangayan. Bakit ba kinakailangang “hard-hitting”? Hindi ba puwedeng i-present mo ang ideas mo sa maayos na pamamaraan? May karapatan si Migs na gawin kahit anong gusto niyang gawin sa site niya.
