Finding love for gay people has become way easier nowadays. With society continuously progressing towards a more open-minded attitude that embraces all kinds of people, love is no longer as forbidden as it was before for members of the LGBT community.
However, due to traditional morals that claim only men and women should be together, intolerance is still present.
Luckily, this viral story of a gay guy and his foreigner lover might change the way people think.
On February 27, photos of two guys together in a beach circulated online due to speculations that the two were dating.
“Kung feeling mo na maganda ka, then you’re not feeling well!
Uwian na mga bes! May nanalo na! Kabog ang beauty niyo!” the Facebook page who posted the photo wrote.
The gay guy, clad in blue swimwear, was photographed with a foreign man wearing pink board shorts. Both men remain unidentified.
The post was able to rake in about 18,000 reactions, 7,000 shares, and 4,600 comments. Many netizens also shared their insights regarding the post.
“Walang kinalaman ang pagkakaroon ng gwapong/magandang kapareha sa iyong pisikal na itsura. Pero, mas lalong walang kinalaman ang iyong itsura kung ang nararamdaman talaga ay tunay na pag-ibig,” commented Airish Novelas.
“why do people feel the need to share this on social media gusto nyo ba ipost din pic nyo ng mas maganda o pogi nyong syota para mafeel nyo na di nyo pala deserve ang ganun kasi panget kayo o kasi bakla o di kaya ay makapansanan o mahirap lang tas mas mayaman mas angat??” wrote Mack Jhed Soriano Anarcon.
However, some netizens also claimed that the photos might have been edited. Netizens Sejnom Al Yrrag and Nazheera Saudhie pointed out what they perceived as flaws in the photo’s editing.
