"Paano ka kumikita (How do you earn then)?"

"Dahil tulong-tulong sa trabaho, hati-hati sa kita (Because we share the load, we divide the earnings)," she said. Then with a wide smile: "Ganyan naman talaga ang pamilya, 'di ba? Magkasama sa hirap, magkasama sa ginhawa (That's how it is with families, right? You are together in suffering, and together in joy)."



Michael David dela Cruz Tan - The founder of Outrage Magazine, Mick is a graduate of Bachelor of Arts (Communication Studies) of the University of Newcastle in New South Wales Australia (just don’t ask when, he says). He can: photograph, do artworks with mixed media, write (of course), shoot flicks, community-organize, facilitate, lecture, research (with pioneering studies under his belt)… this one’s a multi-tasker, who is even conversant in Filipino Sign Language. He heads the only LGBTzine in the Philippines. Cross his path is the dare (read: It won’t be boring). Coordinate with him at editor@outragemag.com.
