We Are Fk.

Three entrepreneurs and long-time friends (the philosopher, Edwin, the altruist, Petra, and the explorer, Adam) have come together to form the collective Fk. to help build better and stronger relationships with ourselves, our loved ones, our peers, and strangers.

This trio aims to break down the barriers of judgment, misunderstanding, and the typical hush-hush attitude of traditional Hong Kong culture by sharing knowledge and experiences.

Ms Stephanie SlackHouse,
The youngest queen in Hong Kong, she’s 21, has amazingly been doing drag for ten years! You wouldn’t know it to look at her ageless face.

A sparkly pop-theatre princess, with a dirty dirty mouth that has a variety of uses, singing, telling jokes and being shady. Don’t be too shady with her though cause she’s a lady…well a lady of the night!
