Our history... our month...

"Happy Pride! :)" I have heard this uttered so enthusiastically and with every ounce of sincerity during the gay pride weekend here in downtown Minneapolis. We are lucky that we are located in Minnesota, a US state that is mostly populated by gay people (second only to California).

This is my second time to attend this event but I have always been proud that this lifestyle is celebrated and not shunned. For a detailed history of gay pride, click this.

The whole Hennepin Avenue street was again littered with gay men, gay women, straight men, straight women and all those in between (still making the decision). But labels.. these are just labels.. what's important is we love.. and love... without knowing why :)

I missed the dykes on bikes, but there were still the trucks with half clad men and women who are so fit and fab. You can't help but wonder if fat is really a sin to gay people.

Of course, the political parties made their presence felt. Every politician worth their salt were there because majority of their constituents are gay people. They must be visible to the community they will serve.

What excited me was the Whitman Leaves of Grass contingent, the poet of our generation indeed :)

Drag queens, dykes, lipstick lezzies, "Mark Nelson eat your heart out six pack abs" are everywhere! My straight friends would remark.. "Sayang naman nila... ang gwagwapo!" Well, it's the law of nature... :) Survival of the fittest... hahahaa.. :)


Lezziess.. :)

AMEN!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
