How often do we see gay couples go public online? Not every day, right? It is a joy to see couples of the third sex taking the time to let the world know about their love. It’s not something to be ashamed of, really. Love is love, and any form of it is worth the brag.
Living in a Christian country made us conscious of what to post or what to say online–or even in real life. We should be aware of the norms, culture, and tradition the whole Philippines are practicing. Unfortunately, same-sex relationships will take time for it to be accepted in your community. Well, hooray for the fact that we have been more tolerating, but we are not stopping there.
Here is the list of Filipino gay couples who took the internet by storm. Why? Proving love is love. #LoveWins

Top glorifying and bottom shaming? Ugh. Still stuck in the early 2000’s? Fair warning, think of this article as a rant.
Stop. If you’re thinking it’s a funny question, it’s not. Personally, every time I was asked this question, I freak out. It’s like answering a question that will soon be used for judging you. You know the stereotypes of top and bottom, right? They are not good.
Just to refresh you, these sexual roles are said to define who’s the man and the woman of the relationship. Like, that’s never the case. Gays chose to be gays because they don’t think being heterosexual don’t fit their sass. So never ever come up to me and say, ‘you’re the bottom so you are the girl in the relationship’. I won’t regret unleashing my manhood prowess just to shut you up.
Guys, c’mon. If we want to be tagged as the man or woman of the relationship, do you think we will ever choose to be gay? We might laugh at it, but darling dear, it’s not funny. We are beautiful just the way we are. No need to label us with such nonsense.
Yeah, yeah we know. Having a ‘girl’ in the relationship is a requirement in this patriarch-driven world. But mind you, we don’t live up to the world’s expectation. We are gay because we can be a man and a woman at the same time. We possess characteristics of both XX and XY chromosomes, you know. *well not biologically, you’ll figure this one out*
You heterosexuals can do your own thing, we can do ours.
Just because you figured out who’s more feminine in a gay relationship, doesn’t mean he’s the ‘bottom’. Living in a gay world will let you know that these signs never work for sexual preferences. I know a lot of masculine gays who plays bottom in bed and I know transexuals who like to keep it on top. *winks*
What I mean by this is, you can never call out someone for being a ‘bottom’ just because he’s soft. The same way you can never glorify masculine gay for being man-like. You don’t know yet how he is in bed.
Just a reminder, friends. Good day!

February is the month to celebrate all kinds of love — whatever shapes and sizes it may come. But for this Pinoy couple, the special month is not only to commemorate Valentine’s month, but also their first month of being together.
Six days after the much-awaited Hearts Day, Leo Alfonso, got home after an ordinary day and was surprised to see his boyfriend who came to see him and brought a lot of gifts for his partner. They made a lot of couple envious when Alfonso uploaded the pictures in his social media account which had garnered thousands of likes and shares afterwards.
Presently, the original post got 17,000 reactions, 11,983 shares and 1,800 comments in total.
According to his caption, “Yung pagbukas mo ng kwarto ganito makikita mo. Uggghhh. So much effort. First month palang to ah? Di ko na tuloy maantay yung Anniversary! Charot. Haha. Yung explosion box talaga yung nakapagpa-wow sakin eh, na may mahaba nyang sulat-kamay na message sa gitna. Thank you babe. Sobra ko na-appreciate. I love you so much po.”
Usually, the most common gift ideas which are favored by most couple are flowers and chocolates. However, Leo Alfonso was greeted by scrumptious chocolate goodies, and some items to treasure.
To Alfonso’s delight, his monthsary gift does not end there. He was also given an explosion box containing a collection of their pictures and a short greeting from his special someone. What more could he ask for?
The netizens’ views and opinions became diverse in this post. A lot of internet users thought it was sweet and even labeled them as Relationship Goals, but the others thought it was too early to organize this much for a first month celebration since grand preparations are usually seen during the most important milestones of a relationship — anniversaries. However, efforts should always be exerted regardless of how long a couple has been together.
At the end of the day, it is refreshing to see how vocal and creative millennials can be when expressing their feelings. It is good to know that they are making use not only of their resources but also the internet to let their loved ones know how special they are to them.
Love had truly won this time.
What makes a man straight or gay? Does doing “gay” sex acts automatically classify you as a homosexual?
These were some of the questions The Guyliner attempted to answer in a GQ article titled Having sex with a man doesn’t make you gay.
Citing a number of situations of men engaging in sexual acts with gay people, the author said being straight or being gay is so much more than sexual contact. Emphasizing that you as an individual can get to decide whether you’re straight or gay, the author said we are free to have sex with men or women and still label ourselves as straight.
“Having sex with a man doesn’t mean you’re gay, definitely not. You get to be who you want to be. But don’t forget the sacrifices your gay brothers make on a daily basis so you can have that freedom to choose,” the author wrote.
However, the author stressed that we must also own our sexuality.
“‘Gay’ sex acts aren’t something to be ashamed of; if you’re man enough to do it and still call yourself straight, be man enough to talk about it. Don’t let it be a dirty little secret; own your sexuality—whatever it may be—with pride,” the author concluded in the article.
