As part of our Queer Culture program, we will choose 20 creative writers to be included in our collection of queer stories. What better way to start the month of love is to write stories, Bisdak Pride said in its press statement.

The competition is open to all Cebuano speaking individuals, regardless of gender, sex, age and economic standing in life.

The Bisdak Pride accepts entries until Feb. 28. Mail submissions must be postmarked Feb. 28 to be eligible for screening.

Applicants may submit eight poems, a short story or a one-act play in English or Cebuano.

Chosen entries will be showcased during the group’s eighth anniversary celebration this year.
