Borrowed Beauty PHOTOSTORY and PHOTOGRAPHED FOR Life of a gay BY MA. CATALINA M. LELANG BA COMMUNICATION 3A Everyone said gays are poison in the society. They are being discriminated because of their personalities and physical appearance, especially on how they act, they dress, and how they talk. I feel so sorry for them because they are the number one victim of discrimination. I ust say that those people who are discriminating them are ignorant. Why do I say so? Because they give fun and laugh for us in some ways. Sometimes they are giving us inspiration, also they have a flexible personalities. They can manage their selves even without the help of others and even they are receiving a lot of discriminating words from some ignorant people, they can stand and just smile on it. And that, I can say that they have a braver and stronger personalities that a straight guy couldn’t have. I know a gay named John Denver Honorica, he is 19 years of age, he stand for a name Margarita Arabella Miciano. He feel sorry for himself because he was born and Baptist as Iglesia ni Cristo. It is really hard for him to show his true self because being a gay in Iglesia ni Cristo is a big sin. But for him it is not a hindrance to show to the whole word that he is a gay and he is proud of being it.

In fact, he joined a beauty contest entitled ``Miss gay Tugos 2013� last December 25, 2013, he felt so nervous for that pageant because it was his first time. He had a practice together with his fellow candidate well, being nervous is really natural for a first timer like him. Especially when your competitor is more beautiful than you. He wore a casual, national, costume of his representing country, swim suit, he made his talent, and he also wore his long gown. And luckily, he made it, he has chosen to be a magic ten finalist. He has been asked by the judges for Q. & A. portion but unfortunately he failed to make it until the top five. But then, he is still it until the top five. But then, he is still happy for what have done. Maybe he didn’t make it until the last but still he did his best to win the title. He is also thankful and blessed because he made it at least until the magic ten, and even though he is a first timer to joined this contest. At last his big dream to become a Miss Gay someday is like a star it’s difficult to reach it. See, even though he is gay, he is contented on what he has, as a matter of fact, he is now a Catholic. The freedom is on his own, he is free to do what he wants, he is attending a mass and he joined the Christmas party of BPK in Cawit, Boac in Saint Rafael Archanghel Church last December 29, 2013 for their dance number performance. Now he go different places to racket or find a job as a beauty image or the beautician and also as dance instructor.
