On October 15th, Akbayan, the Pilipino collegiate organization at San Jose State University welcomed Daniel Lazo, on our organizing team, in a 75-minute workshop centered on building understanding and awareness on issues impacting the LGBTQIA+ community.
First developed and debuted in 2016 by Jenna Edra and Daniel Lazo on our organizing team, our “Here & Queer” workshop has been led across several local and regional campuses since its creation.
Addressing personal reflection and engaging participants in scenarios based on empathy and understanding, our Here & Queer workshop integrates Fil cultural and ethnic dynamics into broader conversations on LGBTQIA+ leadership, stories, and transcendence in the United States context.
In June 2020, we will be presenting a Queer Pilipinx Conference in the Bay Area. Among the topics, themes, and workshops that will be offered, Here & Queer is only a small sneak peek of what’s to come!
For more information on getting involved in our Queer Pilipinx Conference, please reach out to Daniel Lazo on our organizing team at Daniel@LEADFilipino.org.
