#HereTogether at the Metro Manila Pride Festival 2017

Yesterday, June 24th, we celebrated the 23rd annual — the longest in South East Asia and almost as old as I am — Metro Manila Pride March Festival.  It was technically my 2nd time to attend but it was my 1st time to actually join the march. And to say that the experience was nothing [...]

Well recently, I gave in and got myself 3 more items. Fortunately (for my wallet), the other items [...]
