I was walking by the tricycle dominated street outside of our condominium building when a three teenaged gay men with long hair and pubic hair revealing shorts started shouting "Durog! Durog! Durog!" and "Paminta! Paminta! Paminta".
In Filipino colloquial language, Pa-mhin-ta means a gay man who discreetly disguises his gender with masculine behavior and style.
And I just realized, the gay men were actually making fun of me.
I was amused. I am the last person who would ever hide my sexuality from the public. But here I am, being ridiculed by my fellow gay man, for being who I am.
