queer taiko

Queer Taiko, formed in 2013 by Kristy Aki Oshiro (they/them), is a multi-cultural and intergenerational group of LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies committed to building trans and queer community, representation and visibility through Japanese taiko drumming. Based in Oakland, the group meets on Friday nights and is always accepting new members and drop ins. No experience is necessary for most events. All equipment is provided.

Available for performances in the SF Bay Area and possibly beyond. To see a full list of our classes and performances please visit our page onĀ Meetup. (Photo Credit: Mark Shigenaga)
