Pagsulat Duag

Literary Work


Pagsulat Duag was born out of the lack of narratives written by LGBTI youth in the city and province of Iloilo. The Iloilo Pride Team, a network of LGBT advocates and organizations, partnered with Hubon Manunulat, an organization of writers in Western Visayas that advocates reading and writing in the Panayanon languages of Aklanon, Hiligaynon, and Kinaray-a. Along with Kasingkasing Press, a publishing house that supports literature in the local language, Hubon Manunulat envisions a West Visayan community of readers and writers in the local languages. We determined that it is the LGBTI youth from the marginalized sectors such as the urban poor, farmers and fisherfolk, and the Indigenous People who have no access to writing workshops.
