Written & performed by Rich Kiamco
Directed by Dan Bacalzo
A queer overachieving Filipino comes out at age 14, facing hate crimes at school, prayer vigils from Mom and the threat of electroshock therapy from Dad. Wrestling with his family's expectations of medical school and his own dreams of fashion design, he escapes the suburban cornfields of Illinois to the streets of New York City. Will he find love, enlightenment and the perfect shade of beige? Through sharp humor, poignant truth, lush sound design and crisp choreography, this autobiopic romp shreds cultural legacy into a hilariously insightful adventure.
