Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson is one of the most “masculine” people in the Philippines. However, Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago lately insinuated that the former policeman is a fabulous creation of God- a gay person.

Lacson denied the accusation (again). He said he is not a “Pinky Lacson” and he does not intend to be. He dismissed the issue just like what Rustom Padilla, now Bebe Gandanghari, did before surrendering to the truth.

Whether the accusation is true or not, I find everything funny. It is like a circus wherein we play hide-and-seek to prove that Lacson is indeed straight or not.



I know some men who strive to develop muscles in their bodies, repeat the “Gago ka ‘tol putang ina mo” line, get away from openly gays, and fake low voice pitches just to cover up the truth.

What if Ping admits he is really Pinky? I would be happy for him. Being gay does not make him less of a respected man. Being different does not make him less of a person. Being gay will even make the Philippine politics more colorful!

What if the Pinky Lacson issue is not true? Then I would tell Sen. Santiago “nice try!”

Some insiders have been speculating that there are closet gays in the Senate and in Congress. Even in other industries, some good-looking men suffer from the same issue.

Actor Piolo Pascual, for instance, is undeniably the country’s best hunk. But he faces the same accusation. His ex-girlfriend KC Conception even aggravated the issue after she admits that Pascual cannot provide her what a girlfriend basically needs from a boyfriend. Hmmmm….
