Isaac Loyola
Loyola Co. New Zealand is the brainchild of a local transgender man, Isaac Loyola. He is also the founder of Proud Campaign Philippines, a registered charity organisation in New Zealand that originated in the Philippines. Driven by his desire to inspire people, he believes that people should not be afraid to fully express their true selves. He hopes to establish LOYOLA as a brand where people can draw the courage and confidence to uphold the beauty and intersectionality of their sexuality.

A very close friend of Isaac once asked him,

"You have been doing this for 9 years! Aren’t you sick and tired of being an LGBT advocate?"

He replied: "No. Living in New Zealand, gives me a privilege, not all queer and gender diverse people get, so I can not stay comfortable when I know there are people out there not far from our reach who do not know what we know, and who do not have the same rights that we have. As long as there are people in our community who are broken, suffering and healing for simply being who they are, then NO, I won’t get sick and tired of raising awareness and empowering people. For every problem, there’s a person and that person matters. As I breathe, I know - I have to stay bothered."


Isaac Loyola describes himself as an old soul who appreciates the classics, jazz and have a longing for nostalgic tunes. He is into aesthetics of minimalism and fitness. He loves his large flat white with cinnamon on top and red wine.
