COVEN's Moe Laga on running away from home and finding her family.
"I don't have all the answers but I just base it off what I've been through and my survival, having to start life all over at 21, and as a woman."
Moe Laga gets blazed and 30 minutes later sits down in the shower with comedian James Nokise to talk running away from home, her performance art and the responsibility of becoming a “queerant” to the COVEN ballroom house, a family of young queer POC.
