Describe your art in three sentences or less.
It is a mix of art and advocacy. Entertainment and awareness. Rage and rave.
What is the role of your art in empowering LGBT?
I can't say that my art has impacted so much for the plight of LGBT. For me, the visibility of people like me making, providing, collaborating to make art is one that I hope will empower other LGBT. That not only does their life matter, more so, what they want to contribute and say to the world matters too.
What can people expect from you when they attend Pride Night?
That they will be mesmerized with my voice, I hope! Hahahaha. If not for my voice, then, I hope they be mesmerized by the message of the song. That they get empowered by merely being there, celebrating with us. Celebrating our Pride.
