Writing Boys’ Love Comics in the Philippines
As an artist who is both passionate about boys’ love (BL) and manga, being a BL comics artist myself was foreseeable. I was raised in a typical Filipino household, known to be conservative and religious, which is why being in this career and as someone who also identifies in the LGBT Community are struggles that affect me both artistically and personally. I grew to naturally love making comics, but was engaging myself in BL also as natural? Through my struggles did I only begin to discover then accept and love myself. My inner strength is what kept me intact no matter what challenge as a BL comics artist and enthusiast comes at me and that is something I would like to share with people.
