Clint Bondad spoke about his thoughts on playing his first gay role alongside award-winning actor Allen Dizon for GMA’s “Magpakailanman”.

“Wow, [I] never really played a gay role and ended up doing a little prepping for the role and was a little surprised because I actually thought I had it pretty figured out with the LGBT community,” the actor said via his Instagram post yesterday, June 11.

Bondad said the big difference he felt while playing the role was the “feeling” aspect of the personality, adding that heterosexual men would suppress pain by distracting themselves or “hardening of the heart.”

“As a whole there are many similarities, but the biggest difference I found was the importance of happiness,” Bondad said. “Happiness as importance ranked much higher in the LGBT community.”

How would I rank as a gay dude? 1-10! 😂 Wow, never really played a gay role and ended up doing a little prepping for the role and was a little surprised because I actually thought I had it pretty figured out with the LGBT community. I guess a big difference was the "feeling" aspect of the personality, experiencing things a little more receptively and also being more thoughtful about it. "Straight" guys experience pain too but we tend to not question it as much and eventually rather suppress it all with distraction or hardening of the heart 😬😅 As a whole there are many similarities, but the biggest difference I found was the importance of happiness. Happiness as importance ranked much higher in the LGBT community. Which usually speaks of a really tough time growing up BUT eventually a realisation of what really matters most in life. Initially we all battle for acceptance, we just come to different conclusions depending also of course on the individual themselves. Happy #pridemonth ! It was a very interesting role to play especially with award winning actor @allentdizon 😂 who is probably even more straight than me hahaha! Never looked into a man's eyes longer than into yours buddy… especially seductively bahahahaha 😅😘 Was all fun though! Hope you guys enjoy the episode of #Magpakailanman on GMA airing obviously this month 😉
