YouTuber Luke Korns

Two weeks ago during the transition from one account to another, I discovered YouTuber Luke Korns. He’s originally from Wisconsin USA but now stays at Los Angeles, California. I have so much idle time at the office the past two weeks that I was able to watch all his videos (except the ones in Spanish). He has over a hundred videos.



I don’t usually follow a YouTuber and there are a couple ones I followed including The Adventures of Zach and B, Husband & Husband and Matt & Blue. I never watched all the videos of this favorite YouTuber of mine but when it comes to Luke Korns, man, I was able to watch all his videos. It’s a first for me.

What made me drew to Luke Korns is his gorgeous green-blue eyes, his flawless skin and amazing hair. After watching all his videos, I can definitely say he’s honest, smart, articulate, talented, intelligent, and funny. He is definitely on his way to become a great movie maker.
I like his travel videos the most. He’s quite a smart, efficient and (his words) spontaneous traveler. The first video I’ve ever watch of him is his travel to Boise, Idaho. He threw a dart randomly on a US map and promised to visit where the dart landed. It landed to the potato capital of the USA.



His travel videos are not your usual travel guides. He has his own route that is very different to most tourist travel guides. Plus, he always make it a point to take a dip in a body of water – a lake, river, spring. He already travelled to Norway, Iraq, Lebanon, and even stayed in Lima, Peru for a year.

Other videos I like are his product reviews – like an electronic toothbrush or a dietary lollipop. He even had a video wherein he tried height-enhancing shoes. He’s a bit insecure about his 5’6” height – as well as his “butt” nose and the fact that he looks very young at his age. He has a video wherein he is often mistaken for a 13 year old guy even though he’s already 19 years old.

He’s all over social media so you might as well try to watch his videos to be inspired by his wit and charm.

Gretchen Diez

Gretchen Custodio Diez – is a Filipino transgender woman who gained prominence when she got arrested on August 13, 2019 at Farmer’s Plaza, Cubao, Quezon City for using female comfort room. Her arrest started a renewed debate on the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE) Equality Bill. (1)



Diez, a 28-year-old transgender woman who work as a cognitive development specialist in Ortigas District, Pasig City, cited violation of Quezon City’s 2014 anti-discrimination ordinance when a female janitor of the mall barred her. She was detained when the mall’s management filed an unjust vexation case against her. (2)
In connection to this incident, Senator Risa Hontiveros again called for the passage of the SOGIE Equality bill. Likewise, Representative Geraldine Roman called for a House probe against the discrimination. (3). The Philippine National Police (PNP) also vowed to investigate the matter. (4)
On August 20, 2019 Gretchen Diez had a meeting with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. It was considered a step towards equality for the members of the LGBTQIA+ in the country. It was here that the president promised to push for the SOGIE Equality Bill passage. (5). On the same day, a senate hearing on SOGIE Bill was conducted by Senator Hontiveros, the Chair of the Senate Committee on Women, Children, Family Relations and Gender Equality. (6)

Pride March 2019 at Marikina Sports Center

Here are the recent pictures from this year's Pride March held at Marikina Sports Center. Too bad, our company Concentrix is nowhere to be found inside the stadium. Almost all call centers are represented in the stadium except Concentrix.
