Hi, my name is Abby Orbeta and I'm from Words Anonymous.

We're based in Manila, Philippines. So today I'm going to read to you a poem that I wrote originally in English, but we've translated it into Filipino.

It's called Chameleon, or Hunyango in Filipino. This is about growing up Queer in a conservative Christian household in the Philippines.
