A new magazine, an old story…today 21st of March 2011 Attitude Magazine celebrates its conquering of the thai homeland…If you thought Bangkok couldn’t possibly be gayer than it already is….think again.
the Renaissance hotel ballroom was turned into a maze of hot guys and more or less gay decoration. a bit darkroom here a bit boudoir there…well it’s gay i guess.
the models were quite a catch the drinks rather weak and the talking unbearable….
but yaay as long as there is a hot guy to stare down what can one possibly complain about, one surprise was that the cover models James “Kitkasem” McFadden & Natcha “Mouse” Jantapan” minus Tony Rakkaeny ( if u need a haircut check out his salon in fancy gloriana K-village ) were all there and so was – bangkok love story/ body building beau – TOP..(Chaiwat Tongsaeng)
we bangkokians know that there will always be another event next week but this one surely hit the queerness barometer to the max. check out the magazine if your good at reading thai in the local magazine stall around your house or if your more of a hiso personality flick through it in villa, they have it as well. my bb is dying and the pictures suck, sorry about that, if you want better pics send me a camera 😀
yesterday i started to watch a really nice movie from the phillipines, as always i stumbled across it in the gay section of veoh.com. it is called ang lihim ni antonio or in english antonio’s secret. the colors and the general slowness of the film are really nice.
I know nothing about the country or Manila in particular and i wonder if it is a good picture of what it’s like there. i f it is i quite like it. very colorful, yet tropical with alot of christianity going on: it reminded me slightly of thailand.
Eventhoug the actors don’t look so well in the photos in the movie they are really cute. I’ve only managed to watch one third yet but a full review will follow soon.
first some general info in chineses on mbd china for those who can read it obviously, i’m more the picture looking type when it comes to asian websites….ben remember bryant is the nice boy in eternal summer, one of the more dramatic sort of gay themed chinese movies, a must see don’t miss it, u can find my post about the movie here… but i thought it’s nice to dedicate a second post to him with some new pictures 🙂
recently my best friend, who grew up in germany but has vietnamese roots told me that she googled a bit around and was suprised to fid out that all the hong kong actresses she used to like from movies of her youth appear to have been beauty queens before they started in the film industry.and not only hong kong i think…
in germany or europe in general it’s not really like this, actors are often chosen to be characters, not just plain beauty, so usually they give a good impression about normal people…of course they are good looking but hardly ever can they reach beauty queen status…..asian cinema therefore can trick europeans into thinking that everybody looks like the film stars,,,which is of course not true…my other friend says it’s the classic star thing that happens in asia, only the most beautiful and tallest and most handsome people can become famous…like it used to be in hollywood maybe, stars were stars, not just the boy or girl next door… therfore movie stars in thailand or korea or japan are usually also models and have big endorsement deals…and very often they are just half asians or a mix of different origins…..are europeans better looking? or or brings the european blood the asian beauty to full perfection? i would say the latter comes close to the truth. asian softness with a european edge, especially for boys….
in my stats i can see that a lot of people are looking for chaiwat ( top ) tongsang, therefore i did a little picture research, good ones bad ones etc. that i haven’t posted yet and present u this little gallery ….
