It's all about optimism this month as we celebrate love with our first-ever same-sex married couple cover stars, Tim Yap and Javi Martinez. See the world through the lens of Hannah Morales, a National Geographic Explorer, and go behind the scenes with Shannon Lee, daughter of Hollywood legend, Bruce Lee! All these and more in the August 2020 issue, out now for free on Magzter.

It's a lovely day when you're surrounded by love. Join us as we celebrate the relationship between two of Manila's most successful eventologists, Tim Yap and Javi Martinez. 

In a historic cover feature that's been a long time coming, Tatler Philippines places Pride at the forefront of our magazine. A month shy of our 19th birthday, we celebrate optimism by delving deep into a love story that's both special and relatable. Learn how Tim Yap and Javi Martinez first began their serendipitous relationship—one that has made its way to the altar at The Peninsula in New York. The pair discuss love, relationships, and family life.

We follow up their story with an in-depth piece on what Pride means in the Philippine context. How did the first spark of protests at Stonewall shape the way we Filipinos view the LGBT community today? Tatler investigates with a thorough history of the development, times, and spaces that have been integral for local members and allies to get to where we are today—and where we need to be tomorrow.

Special features on a variety of interesting personalities await within the glossy pages of our new issue. Join us as we take a peek into the lens of the talented Hannah Morales—a National Geographic Explorer who has also recently photographed for Dior during Paris Fashion Week. CCP chairperson Margie Moran-Floirendo and Art Fair Philippines co-founder Trickie Colayco Lopa, together with some of the most respected leaders in the arts community give us their take on the current state of Philippine art and theatre in "State of the Art"; while alumnae of some of the world's most prestigious schools share their hopes with us in our feature called "The Graduates".

We follow this up with a feature on Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee's daughter, who speaks to us on her father's legacy through the context of Vietnamese filmmaker, Bao Minh Nguyen's, latest documentary, Be Water. Top experts in their field continue to guide us through being conversant on a range of topics including public speaking with Karen Davila, literature with Miguel Syjuco, and investment with Phillip Hagedorn. Tatler Asia also investigates the esports video games scene, which has now evolved to become a billion-dollar industry in Asia.

Whether it's fashion, style, travel, or jewellery, Tatler Philippines serves up one of our most colourful issues to date this August 2020.
