A gay American writer based in the Czech Republic writes about Manila Gay Guy:
I still can’t figure out why this blog (Manila Gay Guy) has so many hits. It’s so chatty, cliquey and really, really gay that all I could think of is that there’s only one gay blog in the Philippines and every single homosexual there reads it. Two or three times a day apparently.(link)
Well, well, well… amusing! But you know it isn’t true that MGG is the only gay blog here in the Philippines. In fact there are a lot of Pinoy gay bloggers. Some MGG readers, in fact, are themselves bloggers.
So I ask, Na-ga-blog ka ba? Hehehe! Here are some notable Pinoy Gay Bloggers definitely worth reading.
Corp Closet is a new blog by Closet Case, a gay executive living in Quezon City. He’s a well-decorated successful corporate bloke, well-accomplished, well-educated, and very well-built (thanks to Fitness First). Well, well, well… go ahead and read his first 10-or-so posts - and feel free to open his on-line closet. My favorite post to-date: Unexpected Places - where he regales the story of how he met his lover of 7+ years - in a gay orgy party! Wooohooo!
Lovers of performing arts gather round Gibbs Cadiz’ one-of-a-kind blog, focusing on the Philippine theatre scene. You can read a sprinkling of movie reviews as well, since Gibbs is also a movie buff and critic. He is the resident theatre guru of the Philippine Daily Inquirer and also one of the editors of their Lifestyle Section. His blog is a finalist in the Lifestyle category of the 2007 Philippine Blog Awards. My favorite post to-date: his Valentine post, Something Really Personal - where he publicly comes out as a gay man, with a bonus funny, funny Puerto Galera “pick up” story. Go read!
The McVie Show
Joel McVie opens his blog with this — “You can pretend to be serious, but you can’t pretend to be witty.” Oh yes, I’m the great pretender. (Pilot episode: 20 January 2004) But indeed, Joel is a witty, witty writer - and wait till you meet him in person - di nauubusan ng punchline! Hehehe! His blog is a mix of many, many things — no specific subject in particular, but some sort of on-line journal. And because of that you can peek into the intimate details of his gay life — like in my favorite post, Saturday is McVie day - where he narrates his day’s highlights - concise and complete, ends with, “…Later on, maybe CB (Club Bath) then Bed. Life is good.”
