queer taiko

Queer Taiko, formed in 2013 by Kristy Oshiro (they/them), is a multi-cultural and intergenerational group of LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies committed to building community, representation and visibility through Japanese taiko drumming. Based in Oakland, the group meets at least twice a month 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 pages on Facebook or Meetup. If you would like to join the group to access more information there are two options. You can publicly join the Facebook group where anyone can view the group members, or privately join the meetup group where only members can view other members. Or, you could sign up for both so I guess there are three options!
