Is Piolo Gay?

Piolo Pascual


An innocent sounding lady friend of mine blurted out one time, "Is Piolo really gay?". To the non-Filipinos, she is referring to Piolo Pascual, one of the country's formidable leading men in entertainment.

Although I have heard a lot of juicy stuff from people working around him and his alleged lovers, I chose not to share those stories. I simply challenged her to a simple showbiz "tsismis" analysis.

I have never heard of any persistent rumor accusing Robin Padilla or Willi Revillame or even John Lloyd Cruz to be gay. Simply because these actors never gave any reason for the people around them to believe that they are not straight. But the Piolo Pascual story has never died and it has resurrected again and again for almost a decade. Now, what does that tell us?

Para lang siyang Ricky Martin ng Philippines. Aamin din yan.

Kasi kung lalaki ka, hindi ka makakatiis na hindi mag-gf ng ilang taon. Part ng pagiging tunay na lalaki ang pagkakaroon ng babae sa buhay niya. Hindi kumpleto kung walang gf or fling man lang. Ilang taon na ba single si Piolo?

anyone only has to look at a photograph of piolo with his son to know that nothing positive has come of his time in showbiz. and that is what makes him such a good actor for teleserye involving tragedy and betrayal.

where there's smoke, there's fire. personally, i do not care if he is gay, in fact, to be honest, i wish he is gay. i would love for him to be gay. but that would be his personal choice and decision if he will do a ricky martin thing. but i am still happy for him, gay or not.

simple lang: madaming bading na ilusyanada na pinapantasya na bading din si piolo at magiging jowa nila.

why does it matter so much that you need to know, lex? will it make piolo less of a person and you a better one if you prove that he is gay? will dragging a person out of the closet make you feel good? what a person is (or is not) should not be your concern. just a piece of advice (unsolicited as it may sound), you should be more concerned at improving your craft, if you know what i mean.

Oh, I think he's totally gay...but then, does it really matter? He's a great actor, shouldn't that be enough?

wala akong pakielam kung bading si piolo. wala naman siyang inaapakang tao. sana isipin ng mga bading na nagpipilit na i-out si piolo kung anong magiging epekto nito sa career niya pag na out siya. esep esep....

im pretty much like piolo, had a baby at a young age but i knew i was gay. i have my child with me and giving him all he needs as his father, just like piolo, i can't come out as a gay man fearing the unknown, of what might happen. nobody knows except very few select friends. i never had a gf after the my child's mother though im always being chased by girls.

if i were straight, i would have slept with so many girls or perhaps got married for good.

i can't question piolo's religious belief but he is still a man and he has his needs just like any straight person but just like piolo i want to remain like this, living in a lie because i don't really care and i can get away with it.

Personally, I don't fucking care if he's gay or not, mamatay kayo sa kakapantasya sa katawan nya..hahaha..

I like him because one he's damn hot and goodlooking, walang panama talaga sa mga bagong mga artista, he still has this charisma.

Ganda pa ng boses.. sana ako na lang si Piolo! Waaaahhh..

Lolz.

Kidding aside, I think mabait naman sya, mapagmahal sa magulang (like me) at hot.. (like me..)hehehe..

Sorry post ulit ako, hehehe I can't help not to defend my idol- I don't think it will make him less of a person if he's gay or not.

Sana magkaroon din ako ng anak na kasing gwapo ni Piolo..

Anyone intrested? =D

There are three ways to find out for sure that a person is gay:

- he confesssed to you that he is gay.

- you saw him having sex with another guy.

- and he had sex with you.

which of these has been your experience with Piolo?

Kung wala, then all you heard is chismis and unfounded rumors.

Let us be fair to others.

Ang problema naman kasi kay Piolo, kung ayaw niya umamin, sana naman magkaroon sha ng konting discretion. ang dami niyang nilalanding boys on the side, suki pa yan ng mga pabooking na college students, natural na sami ng mga pinapatulan niya lalabas at laalbas din ang sikretong tinatago niya.

I really don't care if he prefers to stay in the closet. Ang ayoko lang yung gamit sya ng gamit ng mga babae para lang mapagtakpan ang pagkatao niya. kesyo nililigawan niya si ganito o si ganyan, nakakairita lang dahil yung ibang girls na-iinlove talaga sa kanya.

I'm not even going to elaborate on the his alleged son. sheesh.

it doesn't really matter if piolo is gay or not.. we, gays, have our own preferences.. whether to go out or not.. let's just respect each other.. kung bading man siya, he definitely has a reason.. siyempre nga naman.. girls and gays are craving with piolo's smile and body, kung magoout siya,duh??

....i agree with anonymous june 9, oo nga ang nakakainis lang talaga ay gumagamit siya ng mga co-stars nyang mga girls para lang masabing lalaki ka...like in real life....ang dami kong kilalang ganyan..ang lamya lamya, halatang bading e nagge-girlfrend pa...diyos ko maawa naman sila sa babae noh...kaimbyerna.

anong walang inaapakan si Pioling? haller, yung mga girls na ginagawa nyang front para lang maitago ang matres nyang lumilitaw, hindi ba pang aapak yun ng ibang tao! ikaw ang mag esep esep dyan, hoy!

pepilicious said...

yung pagfront nya sa mga babae, sa tingin nyo ba gusto na yun?? hindi nyo ba naisip na malamang that's only for publicity for the sake of his career.. na kung bading man talaga si piolo eh gustong gusto na niya lumadlad kaso hinihingi ng panahon at ng trabaho niya na wag na lang.. mahirap din yun ah..

paano mag oout si piolo kung talamak pa rin ang diskriminasyon sa mga bakla sa pilipinas.

and sa mga nagsasabi na ginagamit lang ni piolo ang mga costars niya. mag isip kayo. hindi siya may gusto niyan kundi mga handlers at management.. isipin niyo ang mga BABAE pa rin ang market na tinatarget ng ABS dahil mas marami sila sa mga bakla. kikita ba ang movie ni piolo kung bakla lang ang magpapatronize? esep esep....

I think he has every right to keep his personal life private. He is a matinee idol and he needs to keep a certain image- its his bread and butter.

I remember what Barbara Walters said about her interview with Ricky Martin a number of years ago, she said it was one of her regrets to keep pressuring Ricky to reveal whether he was gay or not. "I think it destroyed his career." the journalist said.

Whatever Piolo's sexual orientation is, its up to him to reveal it or not. We have no business in his personal life.

Peace!

MAGSITIGIL KAYO! sa ABSCBN ako nagwowork at hindi po pakana ng management ang paglilink nya sa mga babae noh! inis na inis kaming lahat sa pagpapapansin ng pamintolang yan. napakagimikera, gaawa ng ingay para lang mapagtakpan ang kabaklaan! I'm sorry ha, pero kaclose ko kasi ang isa sa mga ginamit niya. kung magaling syang artista, pagbutihin na lang nya ang arte nya sa harap ng kamera, hindi yung kung anu ano pang kadramahan ang ginagawa nya in real life!

Kaya KC Concepcion, pwede ba, PLEASE WAKE UP!

I feel sorry for Piolo. If indeed he was gay, I could feel his pain. But all I feel is shame for all the gay people who continue to bash him for not coming out. Why can we just let him be? Is it a wrong to protect your privacy, your loved ones or your career? We always complain about the hurt we suffer from the cruelty of society and yet we are doing the same to our own kind. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

It is not easy to come out of the closet. I'm just a regular guy, and yet I'm horrified by the thought of coming out. It's not just me, it is because of the pain and suffering it could bring to my loved ones. It is the uncertainty of what lies ahead after I come out that makes it so painfully hard to do. So, why can't we understand that? Why don't we just shrug off our curiosity and leave him to choose what he wants to do with his life?

It is ok to be curious. But to force your choice for someone else to make is just a bit unfair.

I love you Piolo!

Piolo Pascual already confessed that he is gay as a testimony were he churched...but as a born again christian he is change by the LORD...and now living his life as a straight guy and a proud chistian.

for me his not gay cos first he feared the Lord he has faith in the Lord and he just trusting his love story in the hands of the Father... and now God gave him Kc concepcion to be his gf and that i hope rumors of being gay would stop cos only God knows his true identity and that he will be responsible for it.. for me he is not gay..

Bakit ba kung bakla siya? It's his own choice kung siya nga talaga. That's his own life. That's his fate. Wala tayong magagawa at tsaka bakit napaka big deal sa iba nun? Don't be too judgemental...wala ring mangyayari, magiging dagdag pa kayo sa problema ng tao!
Di ba kayo naawa sa kanya? Lahat ng tao hinusgahan siya.
If you expect that I'm one of his diehard fans, well I'm not. Just considering the feelings of the person.
