TJ Trinidad and Mylene Dizon The Fabcasters are back, and this time, with the Chris Martinez, director/writer/producer of “100” — the indie movie starring Mylene Dizon, Tessie Tomas, and Eugene Domingo. Chris is also the screenplay writer of Bridal Shower, Bikini Open, Sukob, and Caregiver. He was also the playwright of the fabulous musical play “Zsazsa Zaturnnah.”

The movie, Cinemalaya 2008’s most-awarded entry and rated “A” by the Cinema Evaluation Board, talks about the unfabulous topic of death, and an OC woman’s (Mylene Dizon) 100 raging things to do before kicking the bucket. The fabcast mostly talks about Chris’s experience in making movies (both writing and directing), in the indie scene and mainstream.

So I thought you guys would like a feature on an icon of success for us PLUs — here you go then, listen and learn, mga ‘teh!

While the world is rejoicing with the victory of Barack Obama, the first US President of African-American descent, I was silently monitoring the gay-related Ballot Measures. In Arizona, Proposition 102 (Ban on Gay Marriage) was being decided on. The measure would amend the state constitution so that only a union between one man and one woman would be valid or recognized as a marriage in the state. In California, a similar measure was also being decided on, called Proposition 8. In Florida too, there was something similar, Amendment 2. All these states were voting Yes or No to Ban Gay Marriage. In all these three states, as of writing, the Yes‘s are winning. In Arkansas, people were voting Yes or No to another gay-related issue: Arkansas Initiative 1— Ban on Gay Couples Adopting Children. Again, the Yes‘s are winning.

Today I received another one of those queries — it’s been a common thread among several recent questions I received in email and through SMS:


Migs, I’m a girl and I have a boyfriend who I love so dearly. I however have this horrible hunch he is gay. Please Migs, help me, how do I know if he’s gay? What are the signs? Please Migs, I want to know! Help!

So on behalf of all these confused girls who suspect that their boyfriends might be gay, I summon the kindness of MGG readers, do pitch in, how would you answer their question: how do I know if the guy’s gay?

A woman’s face with nature’s own hand painted,
Hast thou, the master mistress of my passion;
A woman’s gentle heart, but not acquainted
With shifting change, as is false women’s fashion:
An eye more bright than theirs, less false in rolling,
Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth;
A man in hue all hues in his controlling,
Which steals men’s eyes and women’s souls amazeth.
And for a woman wert thou first created;
Till Nature, as she wrought thee, fell a-doting,
And by addition me of thee defeated,
By adding one thing to my purpose nothing.
But since she prick’d thee out for women’s pleasure,
Mine be thy love and thy love’s use their treasure.

[Shakespeare, Sonnet 20]

A deluge of searches for ‘Bruce Quebral’ have been logged in this blog these past days — seems a considerable number of netizens have been searching for this guy… Hmmm… what could be causing this? Any curious news about Bruce lately?

Here’s an excerpt from his interview with Cosmo:

What do you think makes you hot?
I don’t know, maybe my skin tone, because compared to other men whose skin is fairer, my skin tone is like that of a mulatto, ‘di ba? This is what makes me unique, in my opinion.

Hi Migs!

Oh my gosh, I don’t know how to start this…

I’m a straight woman who fell in love with a guy whom everybody thinks is gay. We were together for almost a year and I battled all my friends — straight girls, guys, gays, and lesbians — they all insisted my boyfriend is gay. But whenever we’re together he doesn’t seem gay at all. People were gossiping that he had a gay lover that he kept secretly.

Last year I broke up with him. Then I chanced upon his blogs and network profile and what I saw made me angry and hurt at the same time. He said he wasn’t gay and he loves me. He even claims he will never be in love again.

Akihiro Sato, half-Japanese, half-Brazilian model has three Japanese words tattooed on his body — the words are SUN, WOMAN and LOVE. He was asked, why SUN? “Sun is life. Sun is a small word with a big meaning.” Why WOMAN? “Woman is very important for life. Man cannot live without woman. Why LOVE? “Love is important for family, friends and the world.”

Hi Migs,

(this is reality and not a fabrication)

Im Andrew, a 20 year old and i come from a privileged family. as a child, i grew up the way things usually are for a boy. i had girl crushes wen i was in grade skul and even went thru d stage of courstships. in fact, i came thru relationship wd a girl but it failed after almost a year. i went to college and i had a serious relationship wid a model-like chick. she was a campus sweetheart and of course i was proud to have her. but d MURKY and TRAGIC story of my life started here.

my family had a new driver. he is Clint and is 5 years my senior. he is not the typical driver hu is messy and cheap looking. he actually has an appeal and cud be mistaken as a part of r family, shud he be given the proper pointers on grooming. at first, i wasn’t into him, nor was he. we started the employer-employee relationship just well. then, our personalities conived as if we were brothers by blood.

Dahil kuwaresma naman, panahon ng pagmumuni-muni, naisipan kong isulat ito. Minsan kasi may mga bagay tayong ginagawa, na kapag nagkaroon tayo ng pagkakataong makapag-isip, tatanungin natin, “Bakit ko nga ba ginagawa ito? May kabuluhan nga ba ito?” Pakibasa, at sabihin ninyo naman sa akin kung may kabuluhan nga ba ang pagba-blog ko dito sa ManilaGayGuy.com (MGG). May saysay ba para sa inyo ang MGG?

Matagal-tagal na rin pala akong nagba-blog. Mahigit isa’t kalahating taon na rin. Tandang-tanda ko pa, nung una kong naapuhap yung ideyang magkaroon ng blog, sabi ko, ano kayang concept? Basta naisip ko nun, gagawa ako nung may mga litrato ng makikisig na lalaki, pero ayoko naman ng malalaswa. Naughty, not raunchy, sabi ko nga. Tapos, lalagyan ko ng kung anu-anong salaysay tungkol sa mga kaganapan, karanasan, at mga lugar na may kinalaman sa kabadingan. Di ko pa alam noon kung papatok, o kung mayroong magta-tiyagang magbasa. Di ko akalain umpisa pala yun ng mga pangyayaring ni sa panaginip eh di ko napagtanto.
