Pinaputok Ako ni Katy
Today everyone will be busy ringing in the new year with their loved ones. People are scrambling to complete the preparations for the festivities, reminisce the good times in 2010 and list down their new year's resolutions, plan last-minute gimmicks, and exhaust the last chance for hooking up this year. Before things get too hectic, I just wanted to post a brief and final entry for this year.
It is not easy being in the closet. I have dealt with the angst and confusion alone. Walang makausap, walang mapagtanungan, itinatago ang sarili maski sa iilang mga baklang kaibigan. What makes closeted life lonelier is that I had no friends to share the joy with for the few milestones in my gay life.
I have only been exposed to the world of blogging for around two months, and being part of your virtual lives and this online community has been liberating. It is ironic that except for the anonymity, I have never experienced this much honesty. And thank you for sharing and listening.
I just wanted to share this song, not just for its literal application. For me it is a modern and danceable variant of Cyndi Lauper's True Colors. I hope that 2011 is a better year for all of us. Another year closer to when we can all hopefully live outside our closets (and not just the gay kind).
Thanks again for the friendship that transcends space and time(zones). Happy new year to you and your loved ones!!!
