MANILA, Philippines – In a supposed day of love, hate painted an obviously decent sign of affection.

 

Bench, a Philippine retail giant and lifestyle brand, unveiled an ad campaign showing different kinds of love (obviously LGBT in nature) last February 11, 2015. The campaign, called “Love All Kinds of Love,” showcased different couples: actress Gloria and grandson Chris Gutierrez, model and Survivor Philippines castaway Solenn Heussaff and fiancé Nico Bolzico, Preview creative director Vince Uy and boyfriend Nino Gaddi, makeup artist Ana Paredes and girlfriend, interior designer Carla Peña. Yet just after a day, couples Vince Uy and Nico Gaddi’s hands were painted black as to what seems to be an offensive sight for the majority specifically for the ASC (Ad Standards Council).

In a statement:

We are always adhering to prevailing moral and social standards of the country. We believe advertisements should not be offensive, derogatory nor should [they] alienate certain sectors of the community. – Executive Director Mila Marquez

As an LGBT advocate and in a same-sex (strong, growing and loving) relationship, it feels bad to see a sight that not only sparked criticism beyond a reasonable doubt but makes me feel how this fucked up society look on the LGBT specifically same-sex couples as a deviance to society.

 

It is disheartening. And saying nothing is the better way of sending the message loud and clear.

 

Now correct me if I’m wrong with these valid reasons why it is just damn right to paint their hands black.

 

Is the act of holding hands of two men a political act of defiance and moral degradation?
