Yes Or No (2010) (Thai: อยากรัก ก็รักเลย; RTGS: Yak Rak Ko Rak Loei; literally “Let’s Love As You Wish”) is a film made by Thai director Sarasawadee Wongsompetch starring Manaying “Aom” Sucharat, who plays the role of Pie, and Suppanad “Tina” Jittaleela, who plays the role of Kim. This film depicts a lesbian romance love story that is so adorable yet real especially for many who can identify with the protagonist’s situation. This movie is super awesome and I love it so much! I have seen this film multiple times, and whenever I watch it, I feel like it’s the very first time I watch it. This movie is a must see.
Why should you see this movie you may ask? This movie is cute yet it touches on real life issues that many lesbians worldwide experience, and also in this film, how Thai culture and attitudes toward lesbians are portrayed. I personally can relate to many aspects of this film, including the protagonist herself, and whenever I watch this film, it always touches a part of me, both of the happy and sad moments on this film, due to previous personal life experiences.
The movie with english subtitles is located below. If you get a chance to buy the DVD for it, I highly encourage you to support the director of this film.
Recently, while researching resources for my “Saving Face (2004) – Like The Best Movie Everr!!!” blog post, I accidentally stumbled upon a sitcom on youtube called “My Best Gay Friends”. Out of curiosity, I clicked on the link and the rest was history. Within the first 2 minutes of the video, I was instantly hooked.
“My Best Gay Friends”, also known as “Bộ Ba Đĩ Thõa”, is a comedy sitcom that was started by 20 year old drama student Khoa Loi Noi, who comes from Vietnam. He happens to be the main protagonist in this comedy series. His internet sitcom is now widely known in Vietnam and has grown in popularity. It is awesome to see media stuff like this, and it can bring you a good laugh or two. I recommend that you see this comedy sitcom when you get a chance. Just make sure you turn on the captions in the video for translation.
This is my very first podcast where I tell the story of how I came out to my family. I am hoping that my story will encourage anybody who is still in the closet and thinking of coming out of the closet.
