Bruha Baddies

Art and Mental Health Series Part 1 with Kayleen (@surbiborkay_art)

November 8, 2020

Content Warning (CW): Sexual Assault

Many times in our Filipinx/a/o community art is something to stray from, romanticize, or only hold value if it's lucrative. On Bruha Baddies, we want to identify folks that use it as part of an overall healing for themselves that eventually encourages others to participate in art making too.

Kayleen is a polymath with art, counseling, and academics. In her avenue of zine making, she re-authors her survivor story and reaffirm her truths helping online and in person communities. Her zines have been conversation openers, and also a source of controversy among family, friends, and fans.

Follow Kayleen's work @surbiborkay and may you find the courage to journal, create dialogue, and own your story too.
