Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy (English: Girl, Boy, Gay, Lesbian) is a 2013 Filipino comedy parody film produced by Star Cinema and VIVA Films starring Vice Ganda with Maricel Soriano, Joey Marquez, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Cristine Reyes. It is one of the official entries of the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival.

The movie is now the highest grossing Filipino film of all time.[1][2]

The movie is supposedly the first solo movie of John Lapus but Deramas dropped him after he refused to drop weight.[3]


In this film, Vice Ganda, an openly gay actor in the Philippines, plays four roles: Girlie (female), Peter (male), Mark ("bakla" or gay) and Panying ("tomboy" or lesbian). These four children were separated at birth. Girlie and Peter lived with their rich dad while Mark and Panying lived with their poor mom. The four accidentally meet as adults. Formulaic Filipino slapstick comedy ensues as the four siblings get to know each other.
