Bradroad.jpg AfterElton talks to friends and family of gay Survivor: Cook Islands contestant Brad Virata. Brother: "Filipino culture in the Philippines is not as accepting [of homosexuality] as the Asian community is here in the States. There's a very strict Catholic background over in the Philippines. Here in the States … I think it's a lot more accepting. In general, we really don't care. There's never been any embarrassment at all or anything like that. My brother's personality is that he doesn't really give a rat's ass about what other people think about him. That's one of the beautiful things about my brother...My brother's more of a Will gay than a Jack gay [from Will and Grace]. It's often hard for people to even figure out that he's a gay man because he can adapt to anything. I think it was a good move on his part to try and get an alliance with the guys. It could help him out later down the line."

  1. Robbie Williams is looking sexy as usdual (not pretty....twinkie justin can cover that...but true sexy , and yes there is a difference)

    On the survivor Brad, DUH!!!!!!!!!!! I picked both him and JD out the first episode. A little research showed JD (who was a hottie) worked as a bar tender at a gay bar when not coaching girl's volleyball (survivor only advertised the volleyball thin whenever they showed him)

  3. The Reichen thing is nothing new. He's had that recurring spot as the bartender at Chez Rouge for months now.

  4. Survivor JP is gay? Cool. Nice to look at but he's kind of a big dummy. He never saw it comin'.

  5. Another glorious week in Reichen & Lance's tireless war against Don't Ask Don't Tell and working their butts off to deserve their Human Rights Champagne fund award. (thanks Hadassah!)

  6. JP is pretty much 'straight' He does work at The Silver Fox in Long Beach.. often times serving up drinks shirtless. He is a great guy and has his gay friends that hang out at the bar.

    PS. Robbie is hot as ever :)

  7. Gays are very much accepted in the Philippines. They, as in the out and flambouyant, are everywhere, politics, entertainment. Brad and his siblings were basically borna nd raised in the States so they have no idea on Philippine culture.

  8. How sad that Lance is forced to go to a Justin concert when he used to be on stage with him. Justin is so overrated anyway.

  9. Not True, dont confuse "accepted" with "tolerated". Two completely different things. Having spent half of my life in the Philippines (the rest here in the US), I feel that theres a huge difference in the concept of who is gay between this two countries.

  10. Our moral superiors in Iceland are again huntin' whales. Don't they know it's the 21st Century?

    Well, isn't that laudable!

  12. Hold on, Anonymous. Notice the [...] between those two sentences. If you go to the original article, you will see that he was making two completely SEPERATE points. I got fooled at first too. Towelroad should edit that quote to make it clearer.
