    149: Queer Asian American History

    Last month was Asian American History Month and this month is PRIDE MONTH!!! So we thought it was best to kick things off with a much-anticipated episode about Queer Asian American history. Before we begin, we want to credit our main source for this episode, and really one of the few sources available on this subject, Breathing Fire: Remembering Asian Pacific American Activism in Queer History by Amy Sueyoshi. You can find this resource made freely available by visiting yourequeerstory.com and going to our posted script. We will also have some more suggestions to beef up your knowledge around Asian American history in our recommended resources at the end of the episode.

It’s been great

Sorry to hear that the podcast is ending, but I’m sure the hosts have many good things yet to come. Luckily, we still have the 3-year back catalog of episodes, covering historical figures and events as well as discussion of issues affecting the present day LGBTQ+ community. Great content!

Best podcast ever!, so informative

There was so much I didn’t known about our history, the hosts are super funny and make me laugh at work while also being educated at the same time, they really do their research

Problematic

You can’t be both inclusive and attest to living those values while at the same time using deficit language and defending it. Pretentious and misguided --And all of this before an episode about the importance of pride. (And re: the T-shirt company and "your say" -- how convenient for you!) 🙄
