So. Much. Feels.

And… Cher!

Crossing Broadway

They could probably stage an entire production of The Lion King if they did this on EDSA or C5. I’d watch that, TBH.

Japan, Japan

by on Dec.18, 2017, under Film & TV, Queer, Snark

Leave it to the Japanese to have a viral high school dance group that captures the 80s so well. If the 80s were on steroids.

You just have to love Tomioka Dance Club, which apparently gain initial fame by placing second in a dance contest.

Kate Does Gal

by on Dec.13, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky, Queer

One of my favorite women doing a hilarious impression of one of my favorite women. Kate is just as much of a goddess as Gal. Also, that activity Gal apparently did during dinner with the SNL cast? I do that when I meet new people on my team. And oh man I wish I’d seen Gal when I was in the Maldives. And Kate, Kate, Kate, too.

Man alive, I’m ranting. I love these two ladies!

End The Stigma

by on Nov.29, 2017, under Queer, Society

Recently, the PDEA and media seriously mishandled a drug bust operation that crossed serious ethical lines when it comes to people living with HIV and how they are treated.

Below is the joint statement of UP Babaylan and its alumni organization, Babaylanes Inc., of which I am a part of, regarding this issue. It is unaccaptable to propagate stigma and homophobia in this manner, and the PDEA and the media outfits involved need to take accountability.

And the new Miss Universe is…

by on Nov.28, 2017, under Film & TV, Queer

Congratulations, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa!

The last winner from South Africa was Margaret Gardiner back in 1978.

It seems, lately, that Miss Universe is really letting countries who haven’t won in decades win again (in the last four years: Colombia, Philippines, France, and South Africa). They’ve also come from different continents. Any guesses for next year?

Pink and Channing

by on Nov.25, 2017, under Music & Theater, Queer, Society

Pink’s got another new song, and this time she’s bringing along none other than the Channing Tatum to dance with her.

And wow, she really knows how to be mind-blowing.
