Manila Gay Guy
  • facebook

Here’s a new indie movie — a love story which is incidentally gay. Mega hugot, “saksak puso” feels. Sa mga gustong mag-emote, lalo na sa mga nakaka-relate sa unrequited love, this movie is for you. A film by one of my fave directors – Bebs Gohetia. Starring Joross Gamboa, Prince Stefan, and CJ Reyes.

“Who do you choose? The one you love or the one who loves you?”

Experience a love that lasts on July 17, 2015, Friday, 8pm at the UP DILIMAN CINE ADARNA for a one-time screening of “I love you. Thank you.”

Tickets at P150.00. For reservations, text Aje (09168694288) your full name and quantity of tickets to be reserved.

Watched “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady” and resolved to myself – I’m gonna watch it one more time! I’ll leave the serious theatre reviewing to the Gibbs Cadizes of this world, but let me itemize the reasons why #LeadingLadyTheMusical is going to be a PETA box-office hit:

1. ENTERTAINING TO THE MAX! Glad to have the same triumvirate of Zsa-zsa Zaturnnah whip this magic sarap up! Thank you, Chris Martinez, Vincent de Jesus, and Carlo Vergara. The ZZZ vibe is strong in this one!

2. POWERCAST! Bito Escalante, Frenchie Dy, Menchu Lauchenco-Yulo, and Markki Stroem. These are big names you will see in the poster. But after the show, you know you should remember more names. More than just big names, talent in the powerhouse cast is overflowing. Worthy to mention, so watch out for them: Nar Cabico, JC Santos, Vince Lim, and Kim Molina.

3. PROUDLY PINOY! The story and music will triumphantly bring the “yaya meal” to fiesta gastronomica levels! In other words, #KPANLL feels good.

4. And finally, Leading Man will give you *nice* dreams long after you watch. Hihi. Imagine towel-clad Markki Stroem singing you your heartsong.

Go watch, and see you in the theatre!

John is uptight and closeted. He is perfectly happy letting life pass him by, preferring the safety of loneliness for fear of getting hurt. He reluctantly returns to his hometown when his sister, Gibby, drags him to Basaan, the town’s annual festival. There, he runs into Trey, an old friend of his who he is secretly in love with. The vibrant and spirited Trey calls out John’s current way of life, challenging him to take part in it. John finally lets his guard down, but it may be too late for him.

The Sacred Band of Thebes was an ancient greek army composed entirely of gay men.

As Sebastian Castro told Philippine Star on November 4th, 2013: “It was believed that if you fought next to the person you loved, you would fight much harder to keep them alive. This led the generals to have the lovers fight alongside one another in battle. I can’t think of anything more beautiful — beautiful and sexy… I love the idea of dragging my followers, or any LGBT for that matter, into this world where you are fighting with, fighting for and possibly dying for the one you love. The ultimate message: You belong. Two words gay kids don’t hear enough and don’t feel enough. ”

Here’s THEBAN, Sebastian Castro’s newest music video.

Queer Manila attempts to create a visual discussion around gender and sexuality within local contexts and internationalised LGBT discourse. It explores the understandings, misunderstandings, conflicts, humours, loves, eroticisms, deviances, spectacles, and dilemmas within Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender identities.

Identity and gender have always been in processes of flux, subjected to numerous influences and social behaviours that change over time, creating different sites for cultures, politics, psychologies, spiritualities and biologies to define who we are. The show, therefore, is about activating and including multiple audiences in a visual conversation about how we look, exchange ideas and comment on gender and sexuality within LGBT communities. It is about processes of othering and reclaiming, through contemporary art’s ability to share, question, and develop these identities. As such, artists have been invited to contribute personal stories, as well as comment on the notion of body politics, activism and culture across generations through various media.

To compliment the exhibition and diversify this conversation, a programme of performances, films, talks and events has been organised that will take place in the gallery over the duration of the exhibition. For a summary of this program, see the schedule below:
