Faces of Pride: Natalino Ornai Guterres || Timor-Leste Pride

“To me personally, it was amazing to see changes take place over the past year. Last year, my brother who was previously not accepting of my sexual orientation, came to march with me. This year, my mother, who was also not accepting of my sexual orientation last year, came to Pride this year. “

It implies a blatant denial of parturition to offspring, a crass refusal of rational identity from a progenitor, making of an anthropoid creature void of ‘in-your-face’ societal stamp, called for human race.

Call Me A Boy – My journey into music and manhood

TEXT BY: Faris Saad // Malaysia || ILLUSTRATION BY: Tom Moore // Germany

Faces of Pride: Rosanna Flamer-Caldera || Colombo Pride

“It is important to mainstream our issues, visialise the LGBTIQ community and give people in Sri Lanka a taste of Queer culture. It goes very far to encourage LGBTIQ persons to come out and feel proud of themselves and also to show Sri Lanka there is a vibrant LGBTI community here.”

Faces of Pride: Tin & Linus || Hong Kong Pride

“The growth of HK Pride as an event, and to see how the crowd changes is pretty remarkable. At 2008 we had 1.000 participants and now in about 10 years time by 2017 we had 10.000 participants. Last year’s survey even showed there are about 18% straight people that came to support their queer friends and family, which is really a nice thing to see.”

Dirt

text by: Jane Flett // Germany || illustration by: Nami Nakano // Japan

That was the summer I finally grew into myself, fitting into my skin like a hand in a tight cotton glove. All summer long, I ran my hands across my life, marvelling. I could feel the neat, tucked seams. The stitches.
