- Organizer: A/P/A Institute at NYU
- Venue: Online event
Co-presented by the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, Brew & Forge, Circle for Asian American Literary Studies (CAALS), Kaya Press, Kundiman, Lambda Literary, Loyalty Bookstores, and Palah Light Lab at The New School.
Uncanceled, unghosted, and still here. Join a virtual reading in celebration of Asian diasporic trans, non-binary, and gender-expansive writers, curated by Ching-In Chen, Noah Arhm Choi, Chrysanthemum, and Yanyi.
This event, organized in the wake of the cancellation of the 2023 Asian American Literary Festival, will also serve as a launch event and fundraiser for ReorientingReads.com, a new campaign and community resource for lovers and learners of our stories.
As Trans Day of Remembrance approaches, as grief and violence persist, we gather collectively to defy all attempts to censor our livelihoods.
