I was recently contacted by Audrey Bugeja about an interview feature for HYPEBAE (HYPEBEAST‘s female-focused vertical). When she told me she wanted to talk about #MagandangMorenx and my experience with colorism & racism in the Philippines, I was thrilled. Colorism is a global issue that plagues communities internationally, and it has different sociopolitical histories in different communities. Every time that I get the chance to speak out about these issues, I jump on the opportunity because it brings awareness to new audiences.
