I got an email from Victor Hoff, an American writer on gay culture:
I just saw “Kambyo” and wanted to let you know how incredibly touching I found it. Okay, touching and really hot. Is Gabz del Rosario gay?? Or Johnron Tañada???
This is your most mature work to date. And Joselito Altarejos shows a confidence in his direction I haven’t seen before.
Outstanding. I’ll blog about it later tonight.
Thanks for watching Kambyo. Your view on the film is quite refreshing as it is our most lambasted film ever.
Shooting kambyo was quite memorable for me because I had a great time with the actors and staff as we were all on a road trip. As far as I can remember, Gabz del Rosarion is straight as an arrow. He loves his girlfriend so much. And as he claimed, he never accepts "special bookings" from gay men. He is proud of his management degree from the Far Easter University and that for him sets him apart from other "sexy actors" who will do everything for a "fee"
Johnron Tanada on the other hand, as far as he claims, is also straight. But he is open in being "friends" with other gay men. In fact, in the blog rddantes.com, it was said that Johnron is now in an openly gay relationship with a gay man in Macau. Whether, this statement was true or not, I could not verify. I have stopped using my friendster account and I have lost contact with these kambyo hunks.
I'm glad you liked the film.
