Meeting a trans bangkero in Lake Pandin

Meet Merce, here as part of #KaraniwangLGBT, which Outrage Magazine launched to offer vignettes of LGBT people/living. As a trans bangkero in Lake Pandin, Merce says to other LGBT people: “Hanapin ang kaligayahan at panatilihin ito. Parang pamamangka; sagwan nang sagwan. Maikli ang buhay; huwag sayangin sa hinayang (Find your happiness, and keep it/stick to it. It’s like ferrying a boat, you just keep paddling. Life is short; don’t waste it by regretting).”
