Digital exhibition features short video, photography, and other media documenting the lives of LGBTQ Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders
The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, AARP, and Kundiman are launching the digital exhibition A Day in the Queer Life of Asian Pacific America on March 25, 2019, with monthly updates of new material through August 2019. The last 40 years have witnessed huge strides in visibility for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer communities, but with little attention expressly to Asian American and Pacific Islander experience. Featuring solicited and crowd-sourced media–short film, photography, boomerangs, video poems, and a longform essay–this exhibition explores queer life in Asian American and Pacific Islander communities throughout the country, including lesser-known geographic pockets, with a focus on the everyday and lesser-known dimensions of experience.
