MAXIM: Featuring gays and lesbians

Mocha (front woman of Mocha Girls has been a photo blogger for MAXIM last February. I have seen Mocha and Hershey kiss on-stage but I haven’t seen them in a sexy cover shoot like this. It’s the first ever Gay and Lesbian issue of Maxim.

In the said issue, you’ll expect:

Gays nightout at Classmate
This is about Boy Abunda with other four famous gay men holding a roundtable discussion of gay issues inside a VIP room in Classmate. Boy Abunda was joined by Danton Remoto (writer and activist), Puey QuiƱones (fashion designer), Mojo Jojo (Magic 89.9 DJ) and Carlo Tadiar (a magazine editor).

The Curious Case of Binibini Gandanghari
A mock cover of Bebe will appear in the magazine including an open letter addressed to Bebe Gandanghari.

Jay: Showing at SM Cinemas

Cinemalaya Best Picture and Asian Hotshots winner for Best Feature – Jay is currently being shown in SM Cinemas. According to the Facebook event, the movie will be shown until March 4. By the way, they have a promo too. If your name is Jay, you can watch the movie for free. You just need to present your valid ID.

The film stars Baron Geisler (as Jay Santiago), and Coco Martin (as Edward Navarro). The film is directed by Francis Pasion.

“Jay” is about the gay schoolteacher that was brutally murdered in a sex-crime. TV producer, then, convinces the family to shoot Jay’s wake and funeral for a reality show. You can read more about its synopsis in their website:

The title of the film reminds me of the song “Hey Jay” by Eraserheads. I’m not really sure though if the title of the film was somehow inspired by this song.
