Reclaiming our Roots with Pride with Pride Toronto and ASAAP
May 27, 2021 / 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
A panel discussion with Asian LGBTQ Community Leaders
Moderated by Ryan Tran
With ASAAP and Pride Toronto
What does it look like when we take Asian culture and make it queer? Or do we take gay culture and make it Asian? Using their own experiences, our panel of queer Asian leaders discuss how our identities can intertwine, and share how they created safe spaces that cultivate our intersectionality.
