ASIAN AMERICAN LGBTQ VISIBILITY

“In August 2015, a homophobic San Gabriel Valley Chinese church announced a march to protest marriage equality. This was met by a huge counter protest led by API Equality-LA, Asian Americans Advancing Justice-LA, and other LGBT rights affirming groups. While the counterprotest was successful, one realizes the disconnect between queer APIs from the SGV and a community that may not completely understand who we are. This documentary and project seeks to share the unique stories of LGBTQIA+ Asian Pacific Islanders from the San Gabriel Valley and greater 626 area code.”
