On Fearless Love: Tradition, Service, and Social Change

Prumsodun Ok, founder of Cambodia's first gay dance company, will share his journey in giving new life to the ancient art of Khmer classical dance, which was nearly destroyed during the Khmer Rouge genocide of the 1970s. Bringing together multiple cultures and approaches, the artist talks about his care for the tradition as he pushes it, creating a new face for Cambodia and for LGBTQ people that transcends pain, struggle, and violence.
