A rare, compelling convening of conversation with community leaders, cultural practitioners, professors, and multidisciplinary artists in the Diaspora engaging in panels centralized on 3 themes:

  • Current issues in the Queer/Trans/GnC artist community
  • Institutional Engagement
  • Innovative Artists & Cultural Practitioners within the Pilipino Diaspora

The day starts off with an Intro to Drag workshop with Briana (Brian Batugo) of Rice Rockettes at 11:00 am, and ends with a Kamayan Kabaret featuring short performances by Kreatibo, Earl Paus, Josh Icban, and Aimee Amparo.
