hi, i'm elyen! i'm a butch lesbian of average build and maximum awkwardness. i identify as a non-binary woman and i use he/him pronouns.
i'm a youth activist from the philippines and i'm particularly interested in topics of culture and politics and how the two intersect. my politics are specifically marxist-leninist-maoist!
as for more mundane hobbies and interests, i like drawing and writing (specifically worldbuilding), reading speculative fiction, and playing old 90's RPGs.

plugging a rap album about the PH war on drugs
honestly... listen to KOLATERAL. it's mostly in filipino but i love this album so much. two years of researching and interviewing the casualties of Duterte's war on the poor guised as a war on drugs has lead to this highly skillful and very emotionally hard-hitting album, and every time i listen to it always feels like the first time
@lokalelyen the cool thing about studying writing in america is how every other guy in your workshops thinks hemmingway is the only good writer and every piece he writes is about drinking whiskey, smoking cigarettes, and your bitch ex girlfriend
