Dig Deeper. When identities are punished, shamed and/or criminalized, it is common for people with those identities to hide elements of themselves or their entire selves to maintain safety. This can lead to a misperception that those people and/or those identities never existed. That’s why it’s important to share and celebrate the stories of people who are or have been marginalized for being who they are. The Asian Pride Project works to document and celebrate the unique stories of LGBTQ+ Asians and their families reminding people across multiple identities that intersectional narratives are real, valid and an integral part of our culture.See more
