If you’re in the know, this ain’t Vargas’ first venture into the world of BL. His first BL series “Hanging Out” is also considered as the first Filipino digital BL. In this series with TEAM Magazine back in 2016, they tackle coming out, dealing with HIV, transitioning, drag and many more valuable narratives the LGBTQ+ community deals with daily.
So for now, we might be in the dark about this upcoming series. We can’t help but have high expectations, though. Best believe—2020 might be the year of Filipino BL series in our feeds.
