Royal Tigresses Unite!

10 01 2009

If you studied in University of Santo Tomas during the late 90’s and early 2000’s you may have heard about The Royal Tigress, an underground association of gay students. These amigas would gather in campus and talk about any topic and play mini-beauty pageants in Colayco Park at nighttime. One thing lead to another until they decided to organize a full-scale beauty pageant featuring gay Thomasian students.

Almost every college was represented in the first (and last) search for the Royal Tigress, from Arts and Letters to Education, from CFAD to Graduate School. Eighteen beautiful ladies of the night were presented in a secluded location near UST and were watched by about 200 people. Marco, a senior AB Economics student, was crowned as the Royal Tigress.

The pageant was a personal success for all of us, but as the years passed and members began to graduate the legacy of the Royal Tigress seem to have faded, until now.

The fabulous stylist and fellow Thomasian Lotho Lotho revives the Royal Tigress as she displays her beauty and strength into the Internet age! The Royal Tigress online group welcomes all gay Thomasian students and alumni. The group aims to provide camaraderie and unity among the gay Thomasians as they share common interests. To join, simply register at USTe.tv and add “The Royal Tigress” in the Groups section. If you have Thomasian gay friends, tell them that their company is very much welcome in our group.

Be fierce and strong. You are a Royal Tigress!

Ang Alamat ng Rainbow Bloggers Philippines

24 09 2008

Noong unang panahon, isang lungsod ang itinayo sa isang masukal na gubat. Mag-isang itinatag ito ng isang hari at itinawag niya itong Pagaybay City. Nakalikom ng mga mamamayan ang Pagaybay City. Iba’t iba ang kanilang mga pinanggalingan, iba’t iba ang kanilang mga wika, ngunit may iisang layuning maging bahagi ng isang bagong siyudad at magtayo ng komunidad.

Dahil maraming inaasikaso ang hari, humirang siya ng isang alagad upang magpalakad ng lungsod tuwing aalis siya patungo sa ibang mga lungsod na itinayo rin ng hari. Unang tungkulin ng alagad ang mamili mula sa mamamayan ng mga karapat-dapat mapabilang sa kanyang gabinete. Marami ang nagkainteres na mapabilang sa gabinete, mula sa mga magsasaka, mamamaso, panday, at mga mangangaso.

Makalipas ang ilang araw, idineklara ng alagad ang kanyang unang miyembro ng gabinete. Nagtaka ang lahat ng mamamayan dahil hindi man lang nagpatala ang kanyang napili. Sa paglipas ng mga linggo, sa bawat pagdeklara ng alagad ng mga bagong miyembro ng gabinete, napagdudahan ng ilang mamamayan na tila may pinapanigan ang alagad.

Empress Maruja, Umeksena sa Wordcamp Philippines 2008

8 09 2008

(Matt, I think you need a pretty good interpreter for this… haha!)

Dalawang bonggaycious na events ang naganap noong nakaraang weekend.  Noong Sabado, nagtipon ang mga blogger ng WordPress sa College of Saint Benilde para sa kauna-unahang Wordcamp sa Southeast Asia; habang noong Linggo naman ay pakabugan ng stunts at kembot ang naging happening sa Araneta Coliseum dahil sa UAAP Cheering Competition.  At dahil tight ang budget kets (bad timing lang dahil naganap ang mga itets bago magkasuweldo), kailangang pumili ang maganda’t maalindog na blogger ng masang kabaklaan sa kung alin ang dapat puntahan.

Napagdesisyunan kets na sodom gumora sa Wordcamp Philippines 2008.  Tutal, naroon daw si Chuckie Dreyfus bilang isa sa mga speaker at gogora rin sa event si Matt Mullenweg, ang promotor at ang may kasalanan kung bakit isang napakabonggaycious na blogging platform ang WordPress.

Ang problema, nag-umpisa ang Wordcamp ng alas-8 ng umaga at nasa Ortigas pa rin akets ng alas-7.  Kailangan ko pang umuwi ng balaysung sa Kyusi para asikasuhin ang mag pautos ni Pujay na nag-Tour of America na naman.  Wala akong choice kundi gumora sa Wordcamp nang alas-2 ng hapon.  Kebs lang, ika nga ni Suzanne ng Temptation Island, “Late entrance, early exit.  ‘Yan ang dramatic!”
