Once a member of Kreatibo, a queer Pinay artist collective in the Bay Area, Jinky has performed her 12-minute monologue "You'll Never Know," along with other collaborative pieces during Kreatibo's show Dalagas & Tomboys: A Family Affair at Bindlestiff Studio in San Francisco, the only permanent community based performing arts venue in the nation dedicated to showcasing emerging Filipino American and Pilipino artists.

The show was honored with a 2005 Lesbian Theater Award from Curve magazine. Jinky also performed her monologue at various venues including the 4th annual Queer Pinoy conference at the University of California, Berkeley campus and with Youth Speaks at the 7th annual Queeriosity in conjunction with the National Queer Arts Festival and the Queer Cultural Center of San Francisco.
