Wednesday, July 22, 2009


Today, July 22, 2009 Wednesday, is the day of the alternate "State of the Nation" address at the University of the Philippines Diliman. It's called the "State of the Nanay (Mother)" address and will be a theatrical spoof on President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's last national address on the 27th of July a week from now. I am honored to play the kinky part of "The Curious Congressman" (above, with the "House Dog" of Congress) who wonders why an empowered woman like GMA refuses to address the most basic of women's rights: the access of reproductive health technology and information to the masses.

The "address" will start around an hour from now at 1:00PM. This is the snack (above) the lovely folks at the Philippines Legislator's Committee on Population and Development gave me before I go down to sit in the "House of Representatives" (below).

Here is a shot of some of the "Representatives" at the "House" (below). Apparently, I'll be sitting with Rep. Risa Hontiveros. Awesome. Love her. She is one of the authors of the Reproductive Health Bill. And seriously, she is the only one I have decided to vote for so far in the next elections. She is running for senator and I got her back. Unless, of course, someone out there can drag out some dirt about her. Which I doubt.

Stay posted for more updates. Live. From the "House of Representatives" UP Diliman.
