Thai gay reacts to viral photo with German boyfriend: “It’s a violation of privacy.”

Naparuj “Mond” Kaendi is not happy about the viral photo of him and his German boyfriend. He has this message to the uploader of the photo: "I want to find the person who first posted the photo. I want that person to apologize."


Pinagpiyestahan at naging viral sa social media ang larawan ng isang Asian-looking blonde gay guy at ng kanyang guwapong Caucasian boyfriend na nagho-holding hands habang nakasakay sa train.

Sari-saring reaksiyon ang nakuha ng gay couple—positibo at negatibo.

Positibo kung iisiping hindi hadlang ang kasarian, kulay, at hitsura para makahanap ng pag-ibig.

Sa kabilang banda, inulan din ng kritisismo at pangungutya ang gay couple, lalo na ang Asian gay dahil umano sa kanyang hitsura.

Kalaunan, napag-alamang ang Asian gay guy ay isang Thai na nagngangalang Naparuj “Mond” Kaendi.

Siya ay 29 years old at isang creative director sa Thailand.

Ang guwapo namang Caucasian guy ay isang German na nagtatrabaho bilang isang modelo sa Thailand.

Pagkatapos kumalat sa Internet ang nasabing larawan, marami ang curious malaman kung ano ang reaksiyon ni Mond.

Sa artikulong lumabas sa website na Coconuts Bangkok nitong April 22, ipinahayag dito ang pagkadismaya ni Mond sa sinapit ng personal niyang buhay dahil sa viral photo nila ng kanyang boyfriend.

Pahayag umano ni Mond sa Thai Rath, isang pahayagan sa Bangkok, Thailand, "I want to find the person who first posted the photo. I want that person to apologize.

"I saw that person. There was someone staring at us, and I thought to myself, 'Here we go again.'”

Hindi raw iyon ang unang pagkakataong kinuhanan sila ng larawan ng kanyang boyfriend nang walang paalam.

“Last year, someone took a photo of us too during the Songkran holiday and spread it online, but it didn't receive attention as much as this time.

“I'm not very happy about it," sabi ni Mond.

Dagdag niya, walang ipinagkaiba ang sinapit niya sa iba pang uri ng paglapastangan sa privacy ng isang tao.

“Taking photos of people like that is no different than filming under a woman's skirt.

“It's a violation of privacy. The first caption I saw was, 'I’ll have to make my face ugly [to get a hot guy].'"

Hindi na rin daw bago sa kanya ang panlalait sa kanyang hitsura at magkaroon ng isang guwapong partner.

"Sometimes people comment 'the foreigner got himself a hooker.'

"People don't know how long we have been together or who we are.

“Of course, I cannot tell them what to think, but these things wouldn't happen if no one took a photo.”

Ayon sa ulat, balak na ring magpakasal ni Mond at ng boyfriend nito sa Germany. Pero nangangamba siya sa maaaring maging epekto ng pagkalat ng photo sa personal life ng German boyfriend.

"I'm afraid this might affect my boyfriend's career.

"They do background checks in Europe and this is a scandal.

"People who do this [take photos of others without permission], please stop."

Wala raw balak si Mond na magsampa ng demanda laban sa kumuha ng larawan, subalit nais niya itong humingi ng paumanhin.
