It’s almost Pride month asienne! What better way to celebrate than with The Gaysian Project? Earlier this year, asienne spoke with the gaysian project’s founder about: its origins, it’s mission and vision to defy the multi-layered stereotypes of being gay and asian, and the complexity and intersectionality of “Asian” identities and its definitions.
One of the team leads and panelists of Care2Cosplay is Tas Al-Ghul. In this short video interview, she speaks with asienne about consent in the cosplay community and the challenges faced by women of color and queer women of color in particular when it comes to fetishization and objectification (view: video below).
As the first South Asian female to have a solo play, now, Qurrat Kadwani, has two. Performing INTRUSION at the San Diego International Fringe Festival, Qurrat Ann Kadwani is better known as Q with her first solo show self-titled as “They Call Me Q”.
