If You’re LGBTQ, You Should Know This When Voting for Trump! #ImWithHer

Trump holding an inverted rainbow flag pretending to support the LGBTQ community.

Deplorable Donald Trump vows to sign the anti-LGBTQ “First Ammendment Defense Act,” making discrimination against LGBTQ folks legal among employers, businesses, landlords and healtcare providers on the basis of a religious belief.  Like seriously, who does this?

This would act to overturn the executive order signed in 2014 by President Obama prohibiting anti-LGBTQ discrimination among federal contractors.

Model Focus: Ethan Bodhi Robertson

LM Ethan RobertsonI’ve been meaning to feature Ethan since posting about Bertold last month but I didn’t know much about him then. I still don’t know much about him now tho (hah!) but I just loved his Instagram posts and he seems like a pretty nice guy!  I think you should follow him too.

What really piqued my interest though is the fact that he’s actually diabetic (one of his video shows him administering an insulin pump).

Have a bad day hey? 😜

A post shared by ETHAN BØDHI ROBERTSON (@ethan_bodhi_robertson) on

 My family has a history of diabetes. My mom passed away from complications six years back, three of my uncles did too and two of my aunts are still battling it on a day-to-day basis so it’s always refreshing to see someone who has it live so actively and with such exuberance. My sister and I are pre-diabetic so we really try to be mindful of everything – health wise.

He’s also a movie superstar waiting to happen! Hah!

Going back to Ethan – I am just so inspired by him. I mean, I already love looking at his videos and pictures but knowing that he’s got diabetes but doesn’t let it hinder his life makes me want to be him when I grow up. Hah! I really do!

Ang Aking Tatlong Kahilingan Kay Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte

DuterteNgayong araw ay manunumpa na si Rodrigo Duterte bilang ika-labing anim na pangulo ng Republika ng Pilipinas. Sa kanyang unang-araw na pag-upo sa pwesto, maraming mga mabibigat na bagay ang maiaatang sa kanyang mga balikat – mga hinahing ng mga mahihirap na Pilipino, ang trapik na dekada ng hindi nasusulosyunan, droga, karahasan, talamak na pangungulimbat ng mga nakaupo sa pwesto at kung anu-ano pang mga problemang kanyang kakaharapin sa loob ng anim na taon. Sa mga bagay na aking nabanggit at marahil marami pa na hindi ko na naisulat, gusto ko lamang pong iahayag ang tatlong kahilingan ko para sa ating bagong Pangulo na magsisimula ang termino ngayong araw na ito.

Una – Pangulong Digong, alam ko pong malakas pa kayo sa kabila ng inyong edad. Gayunpaman, gusto ko pong hilingin sa inyo na huwag magpabaya sa inyong kalusugan. Alam ko pong prayoridad niyo kaming mga taong-bayan, pero nawa’y ang mga suliranin ng bayan ay wag maka-apekto sa inyong kalusugan. Kailangan namin ang inyong pamumuno sa loob ng anim na taon na malakas at matalas hindi lamang sa isipan pati narin sa kalusugan.

Ikalawa – Nawa’y lalo niyo pa pong isulong ang pagkapantay-pantay ng bawat Pilipino. Marahil, hindi na talaga magkakapantay-pantay ang pamumuhay ng mayayaman sa mga mahihirap na Pilipino subalit sa mata ng batas, sana po’y itulak niyo ang isang Pilipinas kung saan ang bawat Pilipino – ano man ang estado sa buhay, ano man ang kasarihan, ang pinag-aralan, relihiyon at iba pa., nawa’y maging patas ang mata ng batas para sa lahat ng mamamayan ng perlas ng silangan.

At ang aking huling kahilingan ay simple lamang po. Huwag na huwag po kayong magbabago. Hindi po ako umaasa na matutupad niyo lahat ng inyong mga ipinangako. Sapat na po sa akin na makita ang ating bayan na sumusulong para sa kaunlaran ilang taon man ang abutin para maabot iyon. Nais ko lamang po na kung ano ang Rodrigo Duterte na ipinakita niyo sa taong bayan noong panahon ng eleksyon at maging nang kayo’y alkalde pa lamang ay siya ring Pangulong Duterte ang aming makikilala pa ng lubusan at makakasalamuha sa loob ng anim na taon.

‘Yun lamang po. Maraming Salamat Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.

Mabuhay po kayo!

Why the LGBT Community Should Vote For Hillary Clinton? #ImWithHer

Hillary ClintonWe have to understand that Hillary Clinton may not have been a proponent of same-sex marriage until 2013 but she’s been doing a lot of things in support of the community prior to her complete change of heart. Hillary’s position about marriage equality was aptly pointed by Mark Joseph Stern with his slate.com article stating,

“…when it comes to gay rights, there are two Hillary Clintons: Clinton the politician, a cautious moderate, and Clinton the person, who of course supports civil rights for gays. I’m not quite sure that dichotomy holds up to scrutiny. It was, after all, Clinton the person who wrote that she “disagree[d]” with a tiny paperwork revision to accommodate same-sex parents. And it was Clinton the politician who told the United Nations that “gay rights are human rights” in 2011—shortly before the passport kerfuffle.”

Speaking of ‘gay rights are human rights’ which seems to be one of the prevailing slogan by the Clinton campaign, you may all remember her historic speech in Geneva, Switzerland  when she claimed that,

“Using religion to justify homophobia was “not unlike the justification offered for violent practices towards women like honor killings, widow burning, or female genital mutilation. Some people still defend those practices as part of a cultural tradition. But violence toward women isn’t cultural; it’s criminal.”

Not only does she support the community in America, but globally she stated:

“To LGBT men and women worldwide, let me say this: Wherever you live and whatever the circumstances of your life, whether you are connected to a network of support or feel isolated and vulnerable, please know that you are not alone.”

“People around the globe are working hard to support you and to bring an end to the injustices and dangers you face. That is certainly true for my country. And you have an ally in the United States of America and you have millions of friends among the American people.”

A lot of us in the community may not know about then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s revision on giving gay US diplomats equal benefits that their heterosexual counterparts enjoy in 2009.

Clinton says regulations that denied same-sex couples and their families the same rights and privileges that straight diplomats enjoyed are “unfair and must end,” as they harm U.S. diplomacy.”

And in 2015, she valiantly expressed her support for the “Equality Act which will mean full federal equality of LGBT Americans and stronger anti-discrimination protections for everyone,”  making this a priority of her presidency.

The above mentioned are just few of the things she did towards the betterment of our community.

I guess what I’m saying is that let’s all be fair. Stop crucifying her just because you are voting for Bernie Sanders. Making it look like she didn’t do anything for our community isn’t just right. Mr. Sanders has supported the community all throughout his career but he’s not exactly a pioneer of LGBT rights.

“When serving as mayor of Burlington, Sanders told an interviewer that LGBT rights were not a “major priority” for him. Asked if he would support a bill to protect gays from job discrimination, Sanders responded, “probably not.” That was more than 25 years ago. Sanders has, no doubt, come a long way since then: The senator endorsed Vermont’s successful Marriage Equality Act in 2009 and has cheered the Supreme Court’s marriage rulings. And he is co-sponsoring the Equality Act, a sweeping federal LGBT rights bill that advocacy groups place high on their post-marriage agenda. “

My point is, will he be putting enough priority to our causes if he claimed the highest seat in the country?

At least all throughout Hillary’s evolution into supporting the LGBT community, we’ve heard words put into action and with that – we know that we’ll retain whatever rights we rightfully deserved in the first place with the hope that as the first woman president of the most powerful country in the world gets elected, our community will also be part of the progression with total equal rights as everyone.
