For many people, a long, stable relationship is as rare as the thought of peace between T.Swift and Kim K. For gays, that hardship is elevated by a hundred percent. Often we use the excuse of only falling for fuccbois or not being ready for a relationship, so when a proper connection between two guys pops up, the LGBT community is thrown into a frenzy. That’s exactly how I feel about famed fashion photographer BJ Pascual and his long year relationship with Mike Lavarez.
December last year was when Mike and I started dating. That photo (top/center) was our first ever photo together, at the first ever Poison Wednesdays at Nectar. They asked me to be a guest DJ. I'm not a DJ but I said yes because matagal ko nang crush si Mike. After niyan nag Goto Monster kami at 5am, so I guess yun ang first date namin... Gotohan. Sozzy lol. I still cant believe it's been a year! Relationships have always been very, very difficult for me, but Mahal, thank you for making everything so damn easy. I love you, @mikelavarez. ????? . PS Hope to see you all tonight at @poisonwednesdays first anniversary! Mike and I will be spinning together. Entrance is free and open bar till supplies last!
A highly successful and loving relationship like this is one for the books. Their love story starts off like a fictional tale only possible in a Filipino indie film. A post night out treat in the form of lumpia served as their medium for emotional connection, from that moment on, the rest was history. Here are five sweet moments between the couple.
When BJ felt a little frisky in the water.
When finger placement made for an accidental d*ck joke.
When we were given a sneak peek of their bedroom activities.
When they gave a romantic interpretation of a bathroom selfie.
When they took a break on an island adventure.
Will they be each others one great loves throughout their lives? Only time will tell. For now, we look towards the present and wish them a happy anniversary. May you guys have many more years of silly moments and romantic nights. (And for you single gays out there? Hit me up.)
