No Pretentions

I heard someone was talking to my sister earlier and that someone just sounds so....gay, intrigued that I went to see who it was, he's so loud and proud, even on his get-up, only the dead wont know that he is gay. His gay lingo is so much far advanced than mine. Its like he's from college and I'm still on elementary kind of thing haha. I must admit I don't know much about gay lingo,I don't use them much, the only words I know are itech, chuvaness, chukchak, luz valdez, chika and my favorite chaka LOL!

Anyway, he lives a few houses from us. I saw that kid grow up, I think he's about 21 now. A full pledge nurse now. At a young age he knew and his family knew that he will be a full blown-BB Gandanghari some day.But they didn't mind, in fact they tolerated his gayness to the bones! When he was 5, I remembered his mom carrying him with a pink ribbon on his hair that you could actually thought that he was a girl.

Don-don is his name by the way,they call him Donna now haha.I thought maybe his parents are longing for a baby girl when the mother was still pregnant on him, since their eldest daughter is old enough and with three other male kids. At 8 I saw him dancing with a baton which he excellently knew how to swings and turns with his hands. His macho brothers are not even angry at him, instead they adored him.They didn't get mad when people telling them "oh you brother is gay", they would just answer "yeah, I know".

Seeing Don-don now with his heavy face-foundation and tight-fitting blouse with a fake LV shoulder bag made me smile at him. In fact I feel envious about him. He don't need to pretend to be someone he's not. He don't need to play straight in front of other people. He don't need to worry how to come out to his family that he's gay.No closet issue.It was a problem solved ages ago.His family accepted who he was all along.

It was easy for him.He didn't have the struggles I had growing up. He didn't had those identity crisis. He didn't have to try to have a girlfriend.He knew he's gay. Period.

With that I'm happy for him.

I just hope I'm like him...

Minus the heavy face foundation and the tight-fitting blouse LOL!

being flamboyant and outrageous to others is one thing and being true to yourself and honest about that to others is another. sometimes the two are the same thing, sometimes they are not.
