Science Love Song

Oh the feels! The boys of AsapSCIENCE put together this really lovely (and scientifically accurate!) love song for all you nerds and geeks out there.

Totally Baduy Pride worthy moment here.

Note to self: Try to take more actual videos during the next trip.

Pride Marches 2014

The annual Metro Manila LGBT Pride March is a rather important event for me and Tobie and we make it a point to find a way to join the march every year. And this year marks the first time that there are two planned Pride Marches in Metro Manila - the Metro Manila Pride March on December 6 and the QC Pride March on December 13.

On the whole, it's great that we're seeing more opportunities for folks to show their pride and participate more in the local LGBT advocacy scene. But hopefully this should also represent growing support for the LGBT rights movement with Quezon City being the first city government to organize its own LGBT Pride event.

I think Tobie and I will more likely attend the Quezon City Pride March, especially given the progress made with the LGBT Anti-Discrimination Ordinance in the city, but if we're lucky we'll be able to manage both in order to show support for all of our LGBT peers and straight allies.

You can register for the Metro Manila LGBT Pride March as a volunteer here.

Singapore Auto Awesome Videos!

So I played around with the Google+ Photos app to see what I could come up with using the photos from our recent trip to Singapore.

Kinda fun stuff!

Rather Long Term Wedding Planning

The photo above comes from the Doctor Who themed engagement photos for Dallas couple TJ Mundell and Timmy Patterson as taken by photographer Shaun Menary. The photos have already been featured pretty much all over the internet and are a lovely showcase of two gay geeks in love finding a unique geeky way to celebrate this next phase in their lives together. They look absolutely adorable together and things like these are sure to make any Whovian smile and cheer for their success.

I guess my social networks are at that point in life when such marriage-focused stories become items of primary interest. Heck, I tend to be among the first to share them as well. And on the surface it's easy to just feel all warm and fuzzy about such things, on the flip side there's the somber reminder that marriage is not something I can actually explore with Tobie just yet. Sure, there are other countries that recognize same-sex marriage or strange religious institutions who perform the ceremony locally as well. But at the end of the day, the Philippines is still one of those countries where marriage equality hasn't quite happened yet - that and many other rights still being denied to the Filipino LGBT community.

But a guy can still hope, right? I think a lot of my viewing of different wedding proposal gimmicks and concept shoots for engagement photos are all part of longer term planning efforts for what Tobie and I might consider trying when we finally have that legal option to get married here.

Here are a few rather endearing videos that may serve as interesting inspiration for possible engagement plans - for now I shall vehemently deny planning anything. LOL
