A star-studded lineup of queer women step into the spotlight at adobo SheCreative’s Pride session

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — In honor of Pride month, adobo Magazine has brought together six influential women who embody creativity to speak at the upcoming adobo SheCreative: Proud, Loud, and Creative.”

It’s a rare occurrence to come across a panel entirely made up of queer women, let alone household names covering a wide spectrum of the creative industry. The guests not only take pride in their respective crafts but in being part of the LGBTQIA+ community too, having to navigate the ins and outs of their industries while unabashedly embracing their authentic selves.

With the help of this year’s host and moderator, Roanne Carreon, President & Co-founder of Queer Safe Spaces, these creatives spanning various fields will spark insightful discussions about creativity, representation, and how their identities intertwine with what they do.


Take a look at the women who’ll grace the SheCreatives stage with their wisdom and inspiring stories on June 20, at 4:00 pm at The Astbury in Poblacion, Makati.
