Dear Madam Claudia,

That’s it. I’ve had it! You will really do everything in order to destroy people who are standing behind the president who is dismantling the machinery of narcopolitics in the country. I don’t know how you got these pictures, because my albums in my personal FB Page are only open to friends. I don’t really know what you are trying to do by posting them.

But let me just inform you about what these pictures are.


1. The picture on the left, where I’m wearing a costume was taken in San Diego, California on July 21, 2013. I’m now setting another picture related to that into PUBLIC, for everyone to see.

I was in San Diego for the 2013 Comics Convention. I took the weekend off my class in UCLA to visit my friends in San Diego. And it was perfect timing, Comics Convention. I took two summer courses in UCLA under the scholarship provided by ECHO Foundation after I won the 2013 ECHO Awards, given annually to excellent and promising migrant students here (see:

2. The picture on the upper right was taken in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It was taken on 26 December 2010 in the hotel room of RFSL, the leading LGBT organization in Sweden. We were celebrating that night because RFSL won the opportunity to host the next ILGA World Conference. I am setting the album where that picture is from for everyone to see:

That guy in the picture is actually one of the LGBT activists who attended the ILGA Conference in Brazil. And if you are asking why I was in Brazil. I was there because I was one of the communication officers for Asia of ILGA. Yup, I was working for that organization.

3. And the picture on the lower right is really my picture. It was taken during the 2010 Halloween in Manila. We attended the Black Party in Malate during that time. I will set that picture to public for everyone to see:

Now, Madam Claudia, it’s now your time to prove your accusations against me. But answer this first: who gave you these pictures?

Rappler this is the FB Page that you are aligning with? Nakakasuka kayo!
