Here’s more info from organizers:

“There is one story that every one of us knows better than anyone else. It is our own story. With all its ups and downs, darkness and light, strengths and vulnerabilities. Hidden within the joys and vulnerabilities is our potential to discover the superhero that resides within. Not one with a uniform or near perfection but one with flaws and courage to uplift humanity.

“Vishavjit Singh is a storyteller who will share his journey about embracing his true self by hesitantly donning the uniform of a comic superhero.
