Beaming Gav, an MGG reader, writes in an email I received today:
I feel lucky to be gay. My homosexuality drove me from mediocrity to excellence. Why do I say that? Let me start by saying that I come from a family of modest accomplishments. I truly believe we were just not blessed with genes to be above-average. But consider this: I was a scholar since high school, graduated cum laude from UP Diliman, and now a manager in a big multinational company, earning more than Php 1M annually, all at 26 years old. I believe all these accomplishments were not because I was exceptional — because I am not. It was because of this: I was driven. Driven to show the world that I am not just gay. I was driven to show the world I was successful, hoping that the glare of success would blind them from the fact that I am gay. But now I realize I shouldn’t even exert too much effort to hide my homosexuality. With that realization, I celebrate it, my gayness, as my driving force to be where I am now. Yes, I am indeed lucky to be gay.
Good job, Gav! I share that positive frame of mind. Mabuhay ang mga bading!
Thank you and World Peace!
