We Should All Live By
The gay community in the Philippines is one worthy of international acclaim. Really, what other country in the world can say that mainstream culture has adopted a dialect the way we have with Bekinese? As the home of the first gay pride parade in Asia, we have one of the most outspoken and dynamic gay communities despite being a predominantly Catholic country. Although gays in the country are still deprived of basic human rights that the anti-discrimination bill addresses, they’ve still found a way to persevere with dignity intact.
Just like any other functioning community, our beki friends also have a pre-determined set of rules (much like the bro code) that, while unspoken, all members of their circle respect and adhere to. Or else.
