The proliferation of other venues which have audaciously hosted so-called bikini shows and contests with nearly-naked [if not totally naked] guys, has put also some challenge upon the relevance of gay bars in Manila. Before, it was impossible to stage one with all those boys in the buff on stage, unless it was held in a gay bar past midnight [and the doors are sealed by the bouncers]. Nowadays, the productions of these shows have taken a bolder – way much bolder move. And the guys just got cocky too. Take for instance, Chris Sevilla a former Ginoong Pilipinas finalist who was in a contest at the Lips Bar somewhere in Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City.
