The Bakla Show is honored when we are mentioned by artists and organizations in their own work. In gratitude, we will begin to highlight them on our blog.
Viewer Discretion Advised (Tape 96), originally written by Emmanuel Romero, first premiered on stage in the 2010 Bakla Show. Romero’s script was then adapted to film and continues to travel successfully through the film festival unit.
