Join us for an evening of writing and creative performance.

This event emerges from a series of summer workshops for LGBTQI+ Asian writers aimed at exploring the complexity of issues arising throughout the pandemic including (but not limited to) isolation, grief and resilience, anti-Asian racism, anti-Black racism, Indigenous rights, Palestinian rights in the Middle East crisis, colonization, and white supremacy.

Led by queer Filipinx author C. E. Gatchalian and co-facilitated by writer Terence Lowe, these workshops offered a brave space for people of Asian descent who identify as LGBTQ2I+ to develop their writing skills while exploring multiple literary genres that hold space for complex feelings, dialogue, and reflection.

Writers showcasing their work include Sanchari Sur, Maribeth Tabanera, Chase Lo, William Dao, Catherine Lewis, Krystal Jagoo, and Niliema Karkhanis.

Presented in partnership with The ArQuives, the world’s largest independent LGBTQ2+ archive.
