A close friend who is currently vying for the title Publisher Extraordinaire Ever is going full blast on his pet projects of putting into print contemporary gay writing in Las Islas Filipinas. I'm sooooo proud of the efforts he and his friends have been dedicating to this endeavor, especially because they give Filipino gay men a much-needed louder voice.
On May 1, 2010, Miss Grey will launch not one, not two, but three books written by some of the most prominent Filipino gay bloggers evah. What can be more cool than that, aber? More details about these books will be released soon, so you better watch out mga bading!
Meanwhile, please take note of the announcement below. I encourage you to click on the photo for a larger glimpse of the pecs and the bulbol peeking from the towel, but I also copied the text of the announcement.
What was it like when you first encountered malice in wonderland? Do you remember that first taste?
We are calling for creative non-fiction in Filipino or in English from Filipino men about their first sexual encounter with another man. Selected stories will be compiled into a book and will be published some time this year.
All submissions must have autobiographical basis. Selected contributors will be acknowledged (it's okay if you wish to be anonymous) and compensated. Manuscripts should not be more than five pages, double space. Deadline is April 20, 2010.
