Video | 'Raised Pinay' Director JL Umipig and Producers Justine Fonte & Rachelle Ocampo Short Interview

Kababayan TV | 'Raised Pinay' to Premiere in New York City

"Raised Pinay" is a community-centered benefit production based on original stories & performances by an all-Pilipina cast. 

Through original story submissions, an all-pinay cast will perform stories of Pinayhood that have formed our identity. The process brings together a group of intergenerational pinays who want to share unique and powerful stories to collaborate, relate to each other’s struggles, celebrate these experiences, and share them with the NYC community.
