Uncanceled. Unghosted. Still here.
Join us for a virtual reading in celebration of Asian diasporic trans, nonbinary, and gender-expansive writers as we launch and fundraise for ReorientingReads.com, a new campaign and community resource for lovers and learners of our stories.
This event, organized in the wake of the 2023 Asian American Literary Festival’s cancellation, will be held virtually on Zoom: Saturday, November 11th, 2023 at 3pm PT / 4pm MT / 5pm CT / 6pm ET.
As Trans Day of Remembrance approaches, as grief and violence persist, we gather collectively to defy all attempts to censor our livelihoods.
