Moderno…kasabay sa pag-usad ng panahon ay ang pagbabago ng uri ng pagkatao ng isang beki (bakla)…We have seen different faces of gays around the world. I do not want to mention all of our kinds here as it will be very broad to discuss. Let me start this blog by the classification of Gays we have now in the Philippines and how Pinoy Gays. understands them.
Transvestite – they are someone (especially male) who cross-dresses. Someone who undergone sex changes (yung puputulin yun toot toot nila at papalitan ng peng-peng). They are the one who usually joins gay pageants and makes it not only a hobby but a lifestyle (sometimes being called beterana). At dahil may peng-peng na sila, most of them are beautiful (turok sa pisngi, sa baba, sa ilong, sa balakang, sa puwit, etc,.).
She-male – sometimes also considered as ladyboy. They are like transvestite but still with male genitalia. Some of them have augmented female breasts from breast augmentation and/or use of hormones (kumbaga meron din silang boobs either operada din or galing sa banig-banig na contraceptives). Sumasali din sila sa Miss-Gong (miss gay pageants).
Gay Man – severe opposite of Trans and She-males. They still look like a typical guy who is having an attraction to same sex. Meaning, medyo may pagka-straight acting sila pero they do not have attraction to woman, ang tanging gusto ay ang kapwa lalaki. Bihis, kilos at salita ay parang tipikal na lalaki (minsan pa ay walang bahid dungis ng pagka beki).
This classification is mostly being misunderstood. If you told someone (especially Filipino) that you are gay, first thing that they would think is you are a ladyboy or Gay Gal (pa-girl kumbaga), which is totally incorrect. Minsan tinatawag din silang Hybrid.
Gay Gals – near to she-males but they still dress like very fashionable men. Most of their things are very shiny, pointed and labeled (pero minsan meron din namang mga social-climber na fashionista, kahit hindi well-oriented ang kulay ng damit; kahit magmukha kang pinagtagpi-tagping trapo; at kahit walang tatak ang suot o mga gamit, basta keri mo rumampage..go gals). As they are close to she-males, medyo maingay din sila (maririnig ng buong building. Chos.) and they are very much attached to their feminine sides.
Bisexuals – is classification of gay who is having physical / romantic attraction with both men and women. Sila yung tipong disoriented pa sa gusto nila sa buhay (kung lalaki o babae ba ang pipiliin). Sila din minsan yung mga “late bloomers”. Minsan nasa late 20’s na bago malaman na bading sila or minsan may mga asawa na. Sometimes they also call themselves as “straight-acting-bi-curious-tripper” (ang haba no? nkklk!!)
Most of Filipino Gay Man classifies their orientation as bisexual which is improper.
Baby Gays – They are the most delicate chapter of growing gays. From here they will decide whether to be a Trans or Gay man or Bisexuals. Yung tipong bata pa lang e kumukulot na yung boses at tumataas na yung hinliliit pag may hinahawakan. They need proper guidance to ensure the right “Gay Path”.
As far as I am concerned, iisa pa rin naman silang lahat…… BAKLA/BEKI/BAYOT/BAKLUSH/PAMINTA…..bow!
