My thoughts about gay marriage and my being gay

Ang ganda ko. CHOZ!

That's one very rare selfie. And an old one at that, too. LOLZ!


I'm gay. I'm Catholic. And I'm a Filipino.

But the Philippines is not actually very tolerant of gay people (most Filipinos aren't, in my experience), more so the Catholic Church. Let's face it. Regardless of all these gay pride marches, etc. the Catholic Church as a whole will never really be that much accepting of the LGBT.

But that shouldn't stop me from performing my duties as a devout Catholic. I go to church every Sunday. I go to the chapel at Builder's Center along Salcedo Street in Legaspi Village from Monday to Friday during my lunch break from work. I don't dress in a vulgar manner, not even in costume parties. I support some charities like World Vision, to name a few. And to be honest I inhibit myself from engaging in any homosexual acts. I go out and date guys (and some male models too LOL) but that's just it. I don't have a boyfriend and I know that I'll never find it in my heart to get married someday anyway. Honestly, gay marriage is just ok for me. I'm not really that crazy about it. I don't believe that you have to get married to show the world that you love each other. But what I'm supportive of is the civil union among gay couples because it somehow protects their rights and their properties as conjugal partners like that of any other couple.

These past few years I've also realized that I don't actually need to "transition" into/become a woman just to be happy. I've discovered that, for me, the secret to achieving happiness is to imbue acceptance and contentment in one's self.

I am the key to my own happiness and I can opt to choose and accept the things that will make me happy.

Nonetheless, I respect those people, as well as my friends, who choose to transition into a woman. It is their right to express themselves in that manner and I will definitely sincerely fight for their right to do so.

As for me, I just believe that God has a purpose why He made me like this and I think I'm still journeying towards the unfolding of that purpose. And like what I always say...I love my God more than I love myself.

As long as I know that my parents love and support me; and that I have friends (like all of you) who understand me, as well as my friends from school, in the office, or anyone and everyone that I meet everyday who treat me with respect; and most importantly, as long as I know in my heart that my God loves and accepts me, which I truly and wholeheartedly do, I'm good.

I don't need the whole world to accept me. I just need "me" to accept me. And I'll be just fine. My life will go on.

Thank you.

Let's all be happy! And gay!

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
