Who is the Filipino? Poetry as opposition
Why does poetry matter and why is reading so important? We talk to Juan Miguel Severo to answer a short but difficult question: Who is the Filipino?

MANILA, Philippines – Juan Miguel Severo – Gege to friends and fans, @therainbro to the Twitter world, staple of hugot culture to many – is a lot of things. He is a poet, a playwright, a screenwriter, a prominent voice on social media, among other things (just don’t call him an activist just yet).

He sits down with Rappler’s Bea Cupin to kick off a series of podcasts hosted by Rappler’s Lifestyle section. We’re trying to answer a painfully short but difficult question: Who is the Filipino?

Catch the podcast here on Rappler and join the conversation online and offline. 

Watch out for Part 2 of our conversation with Gege – we’ll be talking about Pride Month and the LGBTQ+ community in the Philippines. – Rappler.com
