The Day to be Gay


I had a great time having dinner with one of Lexuality readers Doc G, and in the course of our conversation, there was one thing he raised that struck me most, his dream of retiring so he is free to be gay.

Doc G claims he comes from a field in his discipline where being gay is frowned upon, where being "out" is a career suicide.

And I can't help but feel sorry for many Filipino gay men in the same situation. The bitter truth is, for many professional gay men, the social acceptance of our sexual preference is far from reality. And for Doc G, reitiring is the only way out for him to enjoy his sexual identity.

Doc G, when you reach that day, when you are free to be gay,  I will be very happy for you. But I will be happier when the time comes that no Filipino gay man will have to wait for their retirement just so they can enjoy they really are.
