The Bakla Review once again wows Migs the Manila Gay Guy with his Ten Best Macho Dancer Movies Ever. Here’s a snippet, and don’t miss reading the entire post by clicking on the link provided below.

If the Western has the Wild West with its cowboys, the Macho Dancer Movie nestles within the dark walls of the Gay Bar with its cast of gyrating, undressing male performers. Macho dancers are not to be confused with the callboy/common prostitute or the torero/live sex performer, although they can be those too. The Macho Dancer’s weapon is his particular brand of striptease. And just as the Western is American and the Samurai film Japanese, the Macho Dancer Movie is quintessentially Filipino. Is there any country other than the Philippines that can fill a top ten list of macho dancer movies with a few extra to spare? In these films, the plight of a people are played out via intermittent seductive numbers, like a musical, but hotter, where the thongs usually come off. Herewith, the zarzuelas of our time.

Val Mante is one truly revolutionary gay man — and this post was written in honor of him. More than 3 years ago, he was at the frontpage of the Inquirer, as one-half of the first married gay couple of the CPP-NPA. Read on.

Reds officiate first gay marriage in NPA

DARE to struggle, dare to win … as married gays. After raiding a few Army camps, two communist guerrillas hid in a forest gorge and fell in love.

Deeply.

That was three years ago. On Friday, under a romantic drizzle in a muddy clearing in Compostela Valley province in Mindanao, Ka Andres and Ka Jose exchanged vows in a heavily guarded ceremony before local villagers, friends from the city and their comrades in arms.

I was listening intently to the workshop facilitator, he was intense and passionate yet almost oblivious to the power his words held. I knew he was about to say something important. And then it hit me, that question, “is there anything in your past that you have intellectually set aside — and yet, emotionally, you know it’s still there, bothering you, blocking you, preventing you from being your best self?” It hit me like electricity zapping into my chest. It zapped to life something I held dormant inside.

I know myself as someone who, if the situation called for it, can be very clinical about things, even with my personal experiences. Given, however, that chance to go back and fetch some unprocessed memories, and the threat that perhaps unconsciously, my blocks come from those I’ve arrogantly intellectually set aside — I was just so ready to admit that yes, there is this one simple emotional memory that is still there lurking, bumping, jiggling inside me. And now it is making its way to my consciousness — and I am just guessing — for a reason.

Si Carol Dauden, na isang magaling aktres, at si Aiza Seguera, na mahusay na mang-aawit, ay umamin na—sila ay mga tomboy. Mukha naman silang masaya sa kanilang pag-amin. Mas naging malaya sila. Natanggap naman sila ng mga pamilya nila at mga kaibigan. Pero bakit ang mga bakla sa showbiz, isang damukal ang ayaw umamin. Yung iba, tumanda na, at yung iba naman, namatay na pero hindi umamin. Namatay nang nagtatago. Namatay nang hindi malaya. Kawawang bakla.

Every day is so wonderful – And suddenly, it’s hard to breathe – Now and then, I get insecure – From all the pain, I’m so ashamed – I am beautiful no matter what they say – Words can’t bring me down – I am beautiful in every single way – Yes, words can’t bring me down – So don’t you bring me down today

To all your friends, you’re delirious – So consumed in all your doom – Trying hard to fill the emptiness – The piece is gone left the puzzle undone – That’s the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say – Words can’t bring you down – You are beautiful in every single way – Yes, words can’t bring you down – Don’t you bring me down today…

When it comes to intelligent movie reviews with a gay slant, I leave it to The Bakla Review (TBR). He gives the movie an A-minus rating, which for me says I got to watch the movie. (And I thought I won’t ever watch a Cris Pablo movie again after surviving that harrowing “SEB: Cybergame of Love” movie he premiered at Cinemalaya.) Here’s what TBR has to say about Cris Pablo’s Quicktrip (formerly entitled “Quickie”):

The scenes are breezy, observant, and direct, some of the best in Pablo’s ouvre, or in any of the gay movies this year, with brisk editing and the wistfulness of Isha’s minimalist music. There’s not much actual sex or nudity, but the director’s original cut (one you can’t see in commercial theaters) includes an onscreen cumsh*t by Andro Morgan. Seemingly simple, with a soulful core, Quicktrip has magic.

Migs,

I want to give my reaction to your podcast entitled Homosexuality and Religion. I am a person struggling with same-sex attraction (SSA) but I don’t consider myself gay in the sense that I’m not into the gay lifestyle now. I may have been before but that was a totally different story. And oh yes I still struggle with chastity issues right now and that’s how real it can get.

I just want to reiterate that the Catholic Church does not condemn me or you for being “gay”. In fact, the Catholic Church has an apostolate catering to people with SSA and it is called Courage. You can visit www.couragerc.net for more details. And yes I am a member of that organization.

Our group is a support group and we help each other live a chaste life. We don’t claim that sooner or later we will all become heterosexuals, etc. Nothing of that sort. Instead, we are responding to God’s call to live a life of chastity and that means for many of us turning away from the gay lifestyle and confronting our deepest issues as courageously as we can be.

Honestly that is the most difficult part for us – renouncing our sinful ways and letting the Lord take control. It’s hard and it’s real. It’s not easy but it is possible Migs.

How long ago was the release of the first Climax photo book? The makers sure took their time with the second one. X-Ray Media, which also publishes the “X-Ray” titles, are by now the masters in assembling flavors-of-the-moment Filipino men for portfolios of impeccable quality and steaminess. Photography, styling, design, packaging — all ace. Testicles, shafts, asses, pubic hair — present and in abundance. Only the cockheads are missing… You’d be hardpressed to find their bodies worshipped in richer textures. Like the first edition, Climax 2 is a beautiful celebration of flesh. It feels like a liberation by way of objectification. [Source]

For those outside the Philippines who are asking if I can help ship you a copy — I can try, but I would say the cost will be prohibitive (e.g., FedEx shipping to US costs approximately USD$30). [The most wise would be to have just 1 person in the US to buy in bulk and be the one to ship to the others who want to buy. Any volunteers?] Is it worth it the money and the shipping fees? I don’t know, only you, the one spending can make that judgment. I have my copy, just like “The Bakla Review,” and I’m surely not complaining. Hehehe!
