GABRIELA BC invites you to an OPEN MIC AND KARAOKE NIGHT at Roots Cafe to fundraise for our upcoming official launch in May. We are a grassroots organization of Filipinos who identify as women and work for the liberation of women and all people in the Philippines from structural oppression and exploitation.

We invite poets, singers, comedians, performance artists, instrumentalists, and all else to perform. Performers can show up at the door, or message us to confirm a spot. Karaoke will also be available later on in the night.

Snacks (pancit, a noodle dish, and puto, steamed rice cakes) and beer will be sold.

Suggested entrance donation of $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

GABRIELA BC is a militant and anti-imperialist Filipino women’s organization committed to continuing the ongoing struggle for justice and liberation of all women and for national democracy in the Philippines. We extend our support and solidarity to other organizations and communities fighting against oppression and exploitation.

We stand in solidarity with Indigenous struggles and movements on so-called British Columbia and everywhere on Turtle Island. We gratefully acknowledge that our work takes place on the unceded and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.

Venue and washrooms are wheelchair accessible.

Our work as GABRIELA BC is committed to liberation and justice for all Filipinos who identify as women or non-binary. We will not tolerate hateful attitudes and ideas such as but not limited to transmisogyny/transphobia, racism, and ableism.

Please do not hesitate to message us on Facebook or email us at with your questions and concerns.
