Last Tuesday, July 9, ipinagdiwang ng TV5 executive na si Perci Intalan at ng award-winning filmmaker na si Jun Robles Lana ang kanilang 10th anniversary bilang couple.
Si Perci ang head of creative and entertainment production ng TV5; samantalang si Jun ang direktor ng mga pelikulang Bwakaw (2012), Yesterday Today Tomorrow (2011), at My Neighbor’s Wife (2011).
Sa Instagram post ni Perci noong Martes ay binati niya ng “Happy Anniv” ang kanyang longtime partner.
Sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Perci sa pamamagitan ng text ngayong araw, July 12, naibahagi nito kung paano nagsimula ang kanilang relasyon ni Jun.
Kuwento niya, “We met [through] common friends ten years ago.
"The phones were what we used to then to coordinate when and where to meet.
"Only found out the he kept his phone all these years. I kept mine, too.”
THE WEDDING. Platinum rings ang iniregalo nina Perci at Jun sa isa’t isa para sa kanilang ika-sampung anniversary.
Kasabay rin nito ang announcement na magpapakasal na ang dalawa sa October.
Nag-post din si Perci sa Instagram ng larawan ng dalawang platinum rings at may caption ito na: “you are cordially invited.”
In-upload din ni Direk Jun ang parehong litrato sa kanyang Instagram account at may caption na: “I used to think that marriage was just between a man and a pregnant woman. Never have I been so happy to be wrong.”
Sabi ni Perci sa PEP, “We plan to get married on October in New York.
"We have friends there and I have a brother there also. But we do plan to celebrate here, too.
“The rings are our engagement rings, I suppose. Not sure what the protocol is for rings for gay weddings, honestly.”
Ang New York ang isa sa states sa U.S. kunsaan legal ang same-sex marriage.
Kuwento pa ni Perci, “Neither popped the question. We just knew.
"We have always thought of getting married though.
“What we decided together that night was to post it on FB [Facebook] and it took us a while to decide on the caption.
"We agreed on ‘you are cordially invited.’”
