laweeklyLA Weekly | Michael Ciriaco - “We have become a gay mecca for a lot of people of color," says Sean/Milan, the social enterprise program manager for REACH LA. "It's a place where people can go and be safe and be themselves.”

This Saturday, May 27, REACH LA (Realistic Education in Action Coalition to Foster Health), an organization which provides young LGBT people of color with social and sexual health services, as well artistic outlets, will expand its sphere of sanctuary with the inaugural Miss Slay L.A. pageant in Boyle Heights. This nascent drag competition serves as a showcase for aspiring queer talent.

"Through working with queer young people of color for over 20 years, our organization has seen first-hand how social and economic boundaries make it difficult for our clients to showcase their talents and create platforms for themselves," explains Sean/Milan, phoning from the REACH LA offices.
