Why do we use pronouns?
KP is a safe space for everyone. The practice of stating your pronouns and asking others for theirs promotes inclusivity and avoids anyone from assuming one's gender identity.
Why do we perform
Isang Bagsak (meaning one down) was a ritual originally done by anti-martial law activists in the Philippines. Now this ritual is done at the end of events to show unity within the community.
The "X" in the term Filipinx is the gender neutral alternative to Filipino and Filipina which is masculine and feminine respectively. We use Filipinx to be inclusive to everyone.
Is this a high commitment
