Fabcast:: the pride and the power, part 1
Recorded a couple of weeks ago with a fairly frisky and opinionated peanut gallery, who trade thoughts and ideas with us on the then just-ended Pride March and the earlier outrageous Comelec decision disqualifying Ang Ladlad for party-list accreditation on grounds of “immorality.” The opinions run the gamut--from those who think marching and seeking a place in Congress isn't needed anymore (or at least not what they can relate to for now), to those who think it's the next crucial step toward further acceptance, and not merely toleration (more often condescension), by society. I lay down my position quite early, with much sardonic laughter but also every word meant: Kung moralidad lang naman ang pag-uusapan, wala na sigurong matitira sa Kongreso. At sa Comelec. Change “wala na” to “konti na lang”, and I'd also include the Church. Whee. Do join the hearty huddle.
