Q&A










Q&A is an ongoing project exploring the intersection between being both Queer and Asian through one on one conversations and listening of stories. The project is rooted in building a personal community, highlighting the necessity of creating an own space.








From the lack of representation in media to the need of being able to openly share experiences, Q&A seeks to give Queer Asians a chance to find community within each other and build connections. Viewing representation as an act that can be fulfilled by yourself and those around you. This series highlights a space for Queer Asians to tell their own unique stories, a narrative that is often stereotyped, silenced or spoken over. These individuals can candidly talk about their identity, thoughts about representation, the future, and what being both Queer and Asian means to them.

























Initially starting only as a photographic series, Q&A can now also be seen through small books of portraits, social gatherings A Q&A Tea Party, an online archive of photographs, large prints with accompanying audio recording and on social media as a means of connecting.
