OUR TEAM

Angus Baguinho is a drama therapist and a SomaSource practitioner with a passion for embodied, holistic justice. They believe liberatory, transformative change must be tended to at every level, from the somatic, interpersonal, and spiritual to the cultural, systemic, and political. Through theater, play, movement and dance, Angus brings people together in creative spaces for individual expression and collective action, all through a rites-of-passage framework.

Angus comes from an immigrant, multicultural, blended, beautiful mess of a family in the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up, Angus, like many, felt alienated from their immediate family and diminished by society’s assumptions. They sought comfort and creativity in their relationships outside of the home and limiting expectations; mostly with mentors and peers who later turned out to be queer and trans like them! Those connections fostered a sense of deep belonging and queer kinship in Angus that they now carry into their professional and personal life with devotion.

After receiving their bachelor’s degree in “Decolonization through Theater ” from Pitzer College, Angus taught K-8 theater classes, facilitated Theater of the Oppressed workshops to High School students, and performed in a Playback Theater troupe in Asheville, North Carolina. They were so inspired by the healing potential of theater that they went on to complete their M.A. in Counseling Psychology with a focus in Drama Therapy at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, during which time they worked with adult clients one-on-one at the Pacific Center in Berkeley, the longest-running LGBTQ+ community mental health clinic in the country. Angus now lives on the ancestral lands of many indigenous nations including the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho in Longmont, CO where they co-facilitate Rooted, a nature-based, rites-of-passage program for transgender tweens, see adult clients through their drama therapy practice Rites of Belonging and work as the Mental Health Coordinator for OASOS, a Boulder County Public Health youth-directed program supporting LGBTQ+ youth.

LGBTQ+ community building and “queer world making” has been the red thread of meaning and purpose throughout Angus’ life, so they are beyond grateful and thrilled to be co-leading Divine Siblinghood this summer with the incredible Abigail Lubahn and with the support and leadership of their mentor Melissa Michaels, Ed.D.
