Note: I made a brief introduction about Pictures of Life (Hulagway sa Kinabuhi) on my sidebar just above the Bisdak links. There’s an English version of this post below for friends & visitors who do not read Bisaya; and well, for fun in linguistic exercise as well.

B as in Bayot

Aw B diay ha… pwes ania ang bayot ko’ng kauban sa trabaho. Way libog si Amo kung bayot ka o tomboi, strayt nga laki o bae, diborsyado o minyo, may ka lib-in o may kabit, byuda, byodo, manyak aw perbert kung isog rang manyak; prigid, kaslonon o bigo basta kabalo ka lang sa imong trabaho – bira.

Nagparti mis ika-doseng estori sa bilding dese otso. Ang ingon sa memong gipadala sa among Awtlok pre estayl ang suot. Haskang abtika lagis mga kabayotan naka kustyom oi.  O atikas Sno Wayt ang kapa ana pirting taasa. Nabiktima intawon ang tibol klot sa pod kort. Nagparid pa ang herpin sa iyang ulo. Kay ikaw daw maglukdog plawer bis di ba mo bugdo imong taas ug ubos.

Kaning bayota ang ako lang ning na hulagwayan. Daghan ni sila halos kada pakolti lagis unibersidad naa. Gakalandrakas lang agi pero en pernes mga hawd kaayu nis ilang maydyor.

Di nalang ko mo konpisal kun ako nang sa wala o tuo kay basig maapil ko anig kabayot lisud na. Pero kung makatag-an mo, aminon ra pud nako.

Kung gusto mog bayot nga padyent ang birada kani di namo mag nosblid ani kay maningles na ni – Mistaken Identity.  Ang ubang entre sama ani tua sa Bisdak Bloggers.

So we’re doing B today. Here’s a bayot (gay) from my workplace. Boss doesn’t give a damn about sexuality or civil status, sexual practices or preferences. If you can deliver you are hired.
As soon as the freestyle dress code instruction hit our Outlook inbox, this party on the 12th floor of Bldg. 18 was an instant riot of gays who typically ruled the costume scene just as you would expect them to take every opportunity to shine on the catwalk. Behold Snow White! Her train stretched meters down to neighboring chairs. Some poor table in the food court got stripped of its linen. And if you balanced such pretty burden of a flower vase on your vivacious head, you would not furrow your brow at pins parading on your hair.
She’s just one gay who managed to swan glide into a snap.  There are several of them gracing almost every faculty in the university. They’re hardly recognizable at this event though on routine academic days they’re experts in their respective discipline.
I’d rather not confess which side was I posing or I turn into a bayot myself complicating matters in the process. But if you can you can guess whether it’s I on the left grinning like an idiot or on the right cupping a silicone, I will admit it.
Fancy more gays? Mistaken Identity will not give you a nosebleed as it is mused entirely in English. Otherwise head on over to Bisdak Bloggers for more entries featuring letter B.
