D’Lo Update

Hey everyone!! I really hope you’ve been enjoying your 2014 thus far.

I am now a co-producer on Dis/Orient/ed Comedy alongside the hilarious Jenny Yang and Atsuko Okatsuka. Scroll down below to see if we’re coming to a city near ya.

Crescent Diamond’s documentary Performing Girl which tells a little of my story has been winning some awards all over the world. Recently, we were at the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival in LA and Newport Beach Film Fest. We’re  going to Inside Out Toronto, Miz Mexico, Out Takes New Zealand, and Kashish in Mumbai!

The short LIT that I was a lead in, is soon to be making it’s rounds on the festival circuit.
AND I am also going to be a part of DYKE CENTRAL shooting this fall in the last episodes of DC’s first Season!

AND LASTLY BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST-LY

The film I am playing a lead role in BRUISING FOR BESOS has a Hatchfund Campaign that ends on May 8th and I would love if you were to donate.
This film is written by the amazing Adelina Anthony who I have had the privilege of working with since 2006. Her plays, her stories, her work in general is compelling and speaks to the lives of communities that we don’t hear from often.
If you are interested in becoming a community funder, please visit this page and donate your heart away! This film is being made in JULY come hell or high water!

Some future shows:

Tuesday Night Café was also recognized by the L.A. Weekly as “Best Free Downtown Performance Series” in their 2013 “Best of L.A.” edition.

May 17/18 
Toronto – Tamil Studies Conference

I love going to Toronto to perform and visit my relatives in Scarborough. This performance is kinda the best of both worlds. I’m performing for my “relations”. Toronto is home to over 250,000 Tamil Sri Lankan people (feels like 400,000). Toronto has been the only place where I have been in a line-up of other Lankan queer artists (shout out to Catalyst YaliniDream, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Gitanjali Natasha Lena).

This work would be worthless if I didn’t have your love and encouragement.
