My lecture at the De La Salle University has forced me to confront myself on what the hell is so important on what I do and what I write about.
After some reflection and meditation, i have figured out why I have and will continue to write stories of the Filipino gay man:
Representing the gay man through stories and moving images is not just about fighting for one’s sexual freedom.
It is an affirmation, that we could never underestimate the complexity of human behaviour.
After all, the human being is far more surprising than we’d like to think who we are.
