Manila Gay Guy

McVie writes, answering the oft-repeated question — “So when did you know you are gay?”

Growing up I sensed I was different because, even during grade school, I enjoyed looking at the muscular figures of Superman and Batman—the more realistic and muscular the drawing, the longer I looked. I especially liked how they wore their underwear on the outside and wished they were skimpier… During grade school I joined the theater club, and … found myself stealing glances at all the cute guys with big bodies when they were changing into or out of their costumes. While waiting for my parents to pick me up after school, I would research about “homosexuality” in the library. All the books said that everyone goes through a homosexual stage. By high school I had my first serious crush. By college I had my second and longest-running crush. By fourth year I told myself, “This is going on much too long to just be a ‘stage’ so maybe I’m gay.”

How about you — when did you know you’re gay? (Or, maybe till now you’re still confused? Hehehe!)

I was at Bar Uno last night to watch the Grand Finals of its “Wild, Wild Wet” model competition with a twist. Thank you to Josh, an MGG reader, for sending in photos. Another reader who wishes to remain anonymous sent in some delicious photos as well. I think the ultimate winner (JV) and the 1st runner up (Xavier) both deserved to win, although I would have chosen Xavier to win the top plum, and JV as the 1st runner up. But past is past! Let’s just enjoy these two hunks’ photos!

Alizon Andres is one of the candidates in this year’s Century Superbods. He twice joined the auditions for Starstruck, that GMA 7 reality-based show for new actors but never made the cut. Would Alizon be luckier this time around? What do you think?

Gay fantasies for the straight guy (ha, ano daw?) — but anyway, this is how they describe Pantasya, a new digital feature from Brillante Mendoza. Pantasya is a compilation of five episodes that all deal with the wildest gay fantasies involving “men in uniform.” — translated as the -er types. The actions take place round the clock with each episode segueing to the next as follows:

I was once dragged by a friend to a party for “straight-acting gay guys.” It turned out to be an “O-Party” apparently organized by a number of closetted gay police officers. (O as in orgy.) Good thing the organizers were late, and I had time to sneak out. Here’s a development regarding gay police officers.


From The Philippine Star 03/23/2007:

sf.jpg The Philippine National Police (PNP) has issued a warning to gay officers not to sway their hips or display suggestive behavior while on duty or they risk losing their jobs.

“If they sway their hips while marching, or if they engage in lustful conduct, I think that will be ground for separation” from the service, Pagdilao said.

A friend texted me late last night – “Gising ka pa? Bilis, watch GMA 7, I-Witness.” It turns out a documentary about Ricky Reyes (“Ang gandaaaa…!”) was showing. It was entitled, “Ang Mother ng Ganda.” I caught the portion where Howie Severino, host/writer of the docu, was interviewing “Mader Ricky.” It was an eye-opener. The Parlorista Ng Bayan has got some hard-hitting ideas in that hairstyled head ha! The gay guy’s got wisdom. And his rags-to-riches story is just perfect for the Pinoy Audience — we Filipinos just can’t resist the inspiration of a poor man turned millionaire, even if he’s gay.

Looking for more pics of the hunk candidates of the 2007 Mossimo Bikini Summit (MBS)? Well I’m just too happy to share with you this treasure of a set, apparently from the official contest photoshoot. Notice how tame these shots are… perhaps their strategy is just to whet our appetite for now so we crave for more, and intensify our anticipation for the competition proper. Well, choosy pa ba tayo? Nakiki-sight na nga lang tayo, so go! Bring it on! Hahaha!
