peace for pride at peyups (June 2011 UPDiliman)
Plus, you wanna see some history? Since I had to show this to someone recently, might as well share it with you folks.
Yes, this was the very first. So if anyone else claims otherwise like someone already did before heheh, thank you to our friends who know the truth and went to our defense. Hahaha echos!
Sensya na wala akong matinong scanner so I just took photos.
Incorporating some artworks as well.
Less is more. More or less. And hmm ideya ng mga beki ang kinda baktongish approach ha. Ako po'y hamak na lesbiyana lamang, nagsusulat.
I was so lucky to have met the wonderful people who worked in this endeavor. To this day, some of them remain queertastically as friends. Man I miss this gig!
Bongga ni mama. Love the b/w glitter thingie.
Of course, our favorite queer hangouts. When they were still actually queer.
Travel buffs and queerdom meet. Of course, it had to be Puerto GAYlera anufi.
Lifestyle was my domain. Began my freelance writing life reviewing restos. Back in 1998. Potah tanda ko na. Pero hey cute pa rin. Chos.
Out and proud is cool. And we began with featuring friends. Two of mine, here.
Experts weigh in on issues. Of course we had to have Neil.
I can't believe our baby was made 2001 pa. Gosh kung totoong bata 'yan, 11 years old na siya at papasok na sa grade six, at inabutan na ng K12. At malamang pinatuli na 'yan last summer kung boylet o niregla na siya kung gelay. Ganun teh! Shet.
But seriously, I am actually happy that after this stint, at least 2-3 more glossies of the same persuasion came out within the 2000s. I also freelanced as a writer for some of them while eheheh modeled for one. (Yah! Me, a mowdel! Lekat next time ko na scan 'yun ha. Hehe. Abangan!)
Too bad publications like these were kind of ahead of their time. Maybe now is the time...
What say you?
Hmmm esep-esep... :)
