I was listening to the spokesperson of the Philippine Army and he was announcing on the radio that the Armed Forces of the Philippines are looking for at least six thousand soldiers. And he mentioned especially that gay men and lesbians are welcome to apply!
He announced that sexual orientation is never an issue in the Philippine Army as long as one is willing to adhere to the standards of the organization meaning a man should wear pants, wear his hair short, etc.
Such announcement is a welcome development among the GLBT in the country. If interested you may visit the recruitement center at the Fort Bonifacio, Taguig city.
Mabuhay kayo sir!
