2007

Art by Judith Ferrer

The bakla or gay male in the Philippines is mostly stereotyped and ridiculed as the campy effeminate cross-dresser or hairdresser. Bindlestiff’ s production takes a more inclusive view by bringing the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, downe and transgender artists to the forefront. Filled with poignant, provocative and hilarious stories, the Bakla Show challenges preconceived notions of what it means to be Filipina/o, American and queer.
