This article shows the movers and shakers in Philippine gay politics. It feels very good to be granted this recognition amidst the stress I have been facing here. It also feels humbling as some of the people here are people I have worked with and looked up to. Pau Fontanos is an alumnus of Babaylan, my very first gay organisation. Fr. Richard Mickley is the founder of a gay support group I used to go to. JM Cobarrubias is a TV personality I loved watching when I was still based in Manila.
Thanks also to Filipino artist Daniel Tayona for accidentally informing me.
