I watched Wonder Woman twice again last weekend.

I have no regrets for seven viewings. So far.

And that wonderful end credits sequence?

It’s been made available online. Enjoy!

The Noise! The Noise!

Transformers: The Last Knight makes Tom Cruise’s The Mummy seem coherent in comparison.

Noisier than even all prior Michael Bay Transformers films, which seems inhumanly possibly but there you go, it has the most convoluted plot of all, which is saying something. It’s as though Bay woke up one morning and thought, “You know what’s missing from Transformers? Arthurian knights and The Lord of the Rings and it’s about time we introduce some form of Unicron, no matter how off the mark he is.” The result of such an epiphany could have been either pure awesome or pure disaster. Take a guess.

Itaguyod!

Yesterday was Metro Manila’s Pride March 2017.

The LGBT community converged in Marikina’s Plaza De Los Alcaldes, where the fabulous organizers of this year’s event had prepared a great pre-march program – which included an appearance by one of our strongest allies, Senator Risa Hontiveros.

Then, underneath the afternoon post-summer heat, we marched and held aloft our pride for who we are and held aloft our resolve to fight for what we believe in: fundamental equal rights for all.

Let the beauty of solidarity, togetherness, and sense of community that we captured through our cameras speak for itself.

This is Us.

This is Pride.

Pride is global.

Last week, news came out that Philadelphia was lobbying to add brown and black stripes to the iconic Rainbow Flag of the LGBT community. The reason is that they want to represent the inclusivity of (American) racial minorities that have a history of being discriminated against even within the LGBT community.

Needless to say, this sparked heated debates over the internet. I also had my own thoughts which I shared on social media, and with Metro Manila Pride March scheduled tomorrow, I thought it was appropriate to also share my thoughts here on my blog.

To sum it up: I believe it is completely unnecessary and, if I may say so, foolish. Adding black and brown to the flag won’t solve any problems of racial misrepresentation or underrepresentation. It also ignores the fact that the flag already is supposed to represent inclusivity and that the stripes represent specific concepts, none of which are race-related.

Happy Thursday! Enjoy the rest of the week.

Work It If You Got The Nerve

The Scissor Sisters are back, and with MNDR, they’ve got a fabulous new song – and if you’ve got even a teeny tiny gay bone in your body, you won’t be able to resist learning how to freaking do the goddamn SWERLK. Fortunately, choreographer Brad Landers has given us a dazzling tutorial, and excuse me while I lock myself up in my room until this Saturday’s Metro Manila Pride March to prep for it with this routine.

The track is now available on iTunes. Swerk it, get it, gurrrl.

Still More Fun

This is an unofficial Philippines tourism ad by Creatives of Manila.

It’s way better than some of the more recent botched efforts by the official channels, eh?

 The Philippines: definitely still more fun. Definitely hard to not fall in love with us.
