    "Come for the eye candy, stay for the soul food" ft. Chance Calloway

    We're so excited about this week's LONG overdue episode with filmmaker Chance Calloway! We recorded this episode last year, and are so excited for you all to meet our friend, the brilliant and wonderful Chance Calloway. A queer Black filmmaker who is behind one of our favourite shows "Pretty Dudes" and the new Pretty Dudes novel! Both can be found on Amazon for binging and reading (go do that ASAP they are both wonderful). This conversation is a blast, and an important one - where we dive into what representation means and how to empower other marginalized voices even when your project is already about a particular marginalized voice. We also talk about Black and Asian solidarity, trying to find queer spaces as QPOC, and gagging over all the hot guys in Pretty Dudes - a trojan horse of a show that is such a wonderful and pure celebration of friendship that uplifts queer characters and poc characters.

    What Stuffed Animals Are You Quarantined With? ft. Jiavani Linayao

    What Stuffed Animals Are You Quarantined With? ft. Jiavani Linayao

    this week we’re with one of our favorites, the hilarious, kind, brilliant and gorgeous Jiavani Linayao ! Jiavani is a queer Black and Filipino actor, singer, writer and comic who co-produces the GaysianAF show at UCB, has hit on Jon Hamm in Between Two Ferns the movie, and has given us the musical origin story of Buffalo Wild Wings through SHUFFLE OFF TO BUFFALO: THE MUSICAL on @offbookpod. Needless to say Jiavani is the best, and this conversation about being queer, what its like being visibly queer Black and Filpino, what its like not being visibly Asian, the importance of representation and trying to survive quarantine is a joy, and so healing. Its like tucking in with a cup of tea and a best friend, so come hang out with us and tell us what stuffed animals youre quarantined with!

A NEEDED SPACE

!!! I hope more folx can support this space !!! So many nuances of being Queer x Asian and not enough visibility in mainstream yet. Maya is an amazing advocate and so welcoming and warm!! Love all of what she represents and I will continue to support so many more lives can truly feel the impact of this incredible work!!!!

Much needed podcast

As a multiracial Asian- Amerian and social worker, I am so thrilled that there is a new platform discussing identity, culture, sexuality, and race, and how the complexity of this intersectionality varies based on each individual's experience as an Asian American.

Looking forward to following along and I recommend this project to anyone interested in social justice and Asian-American cultural issues and stigmas.
