About The Bakla Show:
The Bakla Show was created in 2006 to begin a new movement to reclaim the term 'BAKLA' and to be inclusive of gay, lesbian, bisexual transgender and queer F/Pilipin@ identities. And we continue to dedicate our mission to educate, challenge, and encourage dialogue among and between different ethnic and sexually diverse communities by means of increasing the visibility of F/Pilipin@ American LGBTQ/GNC experience. Producer and co-creator of The Bakla Show, Shannon Lee L. Pacaoan, states that she was motivated to produce a new show after learning of the heartbreaking stories about bullying, assaults, and suicides of LGBTQ/GNC young people over the past several years. Further, Pacaoan is also motivated by the countless stories one never hears: those buried by family silence and shame, two prevalent features of Filipino culture. With this in mind, The Bakla Show III seeks to explore the textured and multidimensional experiences of LGBTQ/GNC F/Pilipin@ youth struggles, hardships andturmoil and to bring to the forefront the celebrations, joy and love. Lolan Buhain Sevilla, The Bakla Show anthology's co-editor, shares, 'Our community, and in particular our youth, need to not only be armed with hope, but also with examples and models of resilience.'
