The Bakla Show 3
The popular Bindlestiff Studio-bred production exploring the awkward, painful, and joyous realities of being Filipino and bakla (Tagalog word for "gay") returns June 2014!!!

The much-anticipated third installment addresses the central theme of youth.


Community Night: Thursday, June 12, 2014, 8PM

Opening Weekend: Fri and Sat, June 13-14, 2014, 8PM


The Bakla Show 3 seeks to explore the textured and multidimensional experiences of LGBTQ/GNC F/Pilipin@ youth struggles, hardships and turmoil and to bring to the forefront the celebrations, joy and love. The 2010 production The Bakla Show 2: Myths Retold, Realities Unfold showcased sketches that went on to garner numerous awards and accolades, including: Edgar Poma's "Tude and Gratitude" which, as part of Eat Our Shorts, was recognized with the SOLD OUT! Award for outstanding box office performance at the SF Fringe Festival 2010; and Emmanuel Romero's "Viewer Discretion Advised (Tape 96)" which was adapted by Drew Stephens into a much-lauded short film  (Best Fest Short Program  LGBT Film Festival, Audience Award  San Francisco Scary Cow Film Screening, Best Short  Cinema St. Louis Q Fest, nominated Best Short  Barcelona Int'l LGBT Film Festival).

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,

As with the last two installments, established and novice LGBTQ/GNC F/Pilipin@ writers were encouraged to submit original works regarding the theme. Submissions were then chosen to participate in a fully-staged theatrical production at Bindlestiff Studio in the heart of the SOMA in San Francisco. In a new development, we are excited to announce The Bakla Show's collaboration with publishing company Glover Lane Press, to also choose submissions to be published in an anthology focused on the same theme.
