So BJ , pictured above with Gabe and Abe Pagtama, recruited Gabe, who brought in his dad, and now the Pagtamas are spear-heading the #AsianLove movement.
#AsianLove is a movement designed to highlight Asian involvement in our entertainment and society. Sixty percent ( 60%) of the world is Asian. There are more Asians in California than any other nationality. There are more Filipinos in Las Vegas than any other nationality. There are more Asians in Houston than any other nationality. Yet Asians reside as a quiet, uncelebrated segment of society where they seem more tolerated , than celebrated.
#AsianLove is designed as a national tour of celebratory #AsianEmpowement events to gather, rally, and organize Asians into a pronounced rising in entertainment, TV, TV specials, events, etc., beginning in March in Los Angeles, then to Las Vegas in April, then to Houston in May, etc.
FILAM -TV partnered with the #WE Movement/ Women Empowerment movement last December to broadcast the #WeGlobal New Year's 2022 broadcast, the largest NYE broadcast. FILAM and #WE are partnering again in 2023 to again broadcast the largest NYE event but also are partnering on Mother's Day to telecast #Sheroes, the largest female tribute ever.
