Overview: This is a call for submissions from Asian American womyn, trans*, genderqueer, intersex, non-binary, and queer people involved in punk. This is an opportunity to discuss the many ways in which we participate in punk and how our identities and experiences shape what punk means to us. We welcome persons from any Asian descent (including South Asian, West Indian, Afro-Asian, East Asian, West Asian, Central Asian, Southeast Asian, Pacific Islander, hapa, and mixed).
Possible topics: How you got into punk, your definition of punk/what punk means to you, the failures of punk (as far as inclusion, representation, acceptance, etc), Asian identity, gender, queer and/or trans* identity, model minority myth, loss (of language, of culture), assimilation, microaggressions, racism, privilege, cultural appropriation, immigrant experience, feminism, sexism, activism, radicalism, relationships, family, food & recipes, music reviews, and much more!
