Ways to Get Pregnant:The Lesbian Way

Before I blog about the lesbian parenting forum I attended weeks ago, I will blog first about the different ways on how to get pregnant: The Lesbian Way.
Well we already know the non-lesbian way, which I believe also is the ‘most desperate move’ a lesbian couple can make, and that is to have sex with a guy. But if you lesbians couldn’t take it, then there’s no need to worry because there are different ways of getting yourself pregnant without having to undergo having sex with a man. You will still need their sperm of course. Here are some of the ways to get pregnant: Continue reading “Ways to Get Pregnant:The Lesbian Way”

Another Transphobic Incident in Aruba Bar, This Time It’s BB Gandanghari

Just got information that Aruba Bar, still is discriminating transgenders/transexuals in their bar. BB Gandanghari, was refused of entry just a few hours ago (April 24th). She was there to watch a concert of her friend Rannie Raymundo. This same bar also denied Inday Garutay to enter the premises way back in 2006. Here is the copy of Inday Garutay’s complaint filed at the Pasig Regional Trial Court.

Their no-cross dressing policy is obviously discriminating the LGBT community. I understand that the bar has dress code rules. Cross dressing is far cry from the specific dress code rules. They can say they can’t allow this kind of clothing etc. Continue reading “Another Transphobic Incident in Aruba Bar, This Time It’s BB Gandanghari”

Flipping Through the Pages of Maxim’s Gay and Lesbian Issue

(photo from Maxim Philippines)
I just got a copy of the Maxim Philippines’ Gay and Lesbian Issue a few days ago with Mocha on the cover of it. Just finished reading the interesting articles and of course looking at the interesting pictures of it too 😉 . I believe this is the most daring mainstream magazine magazine that I’ve seen lately. A lot of provocative femme-to-femme poses from women who I believe who are just swingers (or bi-curious women) but not really femme lesbians per se. Oh well.

It’s obviously selling femme-to-femme action which is appealing to men (and lesbians) of course. Would you think that men would buy the magazine if there’s a butch-to-femme action? Nahh. Well, that is the nature of the magazine so I really wouldn’t expect much from them. There were lots of nipple exposures (there were a lot, literally). I admit that I enjoyed looking at some of the pictures there (and no I am not being a hypocrite about it) but I was also looking for some depth as what it claims to be: the ‘gay and lesbian issue’. There were some articles that at least tickled my brain (and at least some of the readers also) not just my libido. Continue reading “Flipping Through the Pages of Maxim’s Gay and Lesbian Issue”

Prof. Danton Remoto Appointed as one of the 2010 Senatoriables for the Opposition

reposted from Rainbow Bloggers:

GAY RIGHTS ADVOCATE, EDUCATOR, WRITER AND 2010 SENATORIAL CANDIDATE, PROF DANTON REMOTO’s phones began to ring in earnest yesterday, as they have done so in the last two weeks, when political operators and campaign teams would call him and ask if they could make appointments with Remoto. He set one appointment, with one major political party that belongs to the Opposition, and they have included Danton Remoto in the pool of senatorial candidates that their Executive Committee has to vet as its official 12 candidates for senator. Official announcements will be made later this month, and a formal oath-taking will follow. And so, the candidate that Comelec did not want to run in 2007, who was called a nuisance candidate, now belongs to a political party that will slug it out block by block, town by town, city by city, province by province, and region by region, in the great, grand battle of the May 2010 elections.

Let the games begin!
