  1. My gay friends are the best, I love hanging out with them. That’s because they’re most liberal and not judgmental. But I had a nightmare with two gay friends as well. One didn’t stop until (s)he got the guy I used to date:P

  2. i agree with ajay, my gay friends are really a blast to be with. liberal, non judgmental, uber creative and funny! the world will be a happier place if there were more gay people around! so there, come out come out whoever you are…

  3. hahaha, tumpak ka dyan kapatid! i was victimized by one din before, but he/she was the exception rather than the norm. i love bitchy gays…the same way i love hard to get men—the challenge, i go for that!
