    How about a hunk and a chickboy fall in love with a basketball varsity player? Ok bang gawan ng story un? Para maiba naman. Di naman siguro kelangan na macho dancer, porn actor, masahista ang story… pedeng ung karaniwang tao din naman… like magkaklase. Ung sikil ok nmn story ng magkababata. pero sana me happy ending sila. Bakit ba ganun lagi ang story ng same sex sa philippine movies? di ba pedeng magkaron ng happy ending? di ba pede ung love story talaga???

    Thanks for the list! The most useful article ever yata rito ‘to, ah. Now will you PLEASE compile a similar list for recent Pinoy gay indie films? Nakakalito na kasi ang dami. “Ataul for Rent’ seems to have a good cast: Ping Medina, Ronnie Lazaro, Jacklyn Jose, Joel Torre, and Coco Martin, among others. I can’t believe Neal “Buboy” Tan did this. ‘Di ba he did/does a lot of those Seiko soft porn films? Coco Martin looks good as usual. The guy can act. BTW, ba’t si Ellen Ramos lang ang na-mention at ‘di si Paolo Villaluna? Aren’t they a team? They made “Ilusyon”.

    Thanks for compiling the trailers for us! Wonder where I can get a copy of selda?
