Review: Galing Cine Cafe

Incisive gay poetry
by Lex Bonife

Nestor De Guzman's Galing Cine Cafe is a brutally honest and incisive poetic representation of gay cruising, anonymous sex and gay relationships in Manila.

It is a bold confession of continuous sexual longing that only gay men could understand beautifully expressed in accessible Filipino language.

From frequenting the "blue bars", to dark parks and movie houses, Nestor De Guzman gives us a glimpse of the soul behind every throbbing cocks in this cruising area.

For me, this book is a must read., August 14, 2008
