Now That’s Intersectionality

There are so many days and months dedicated to causes that I never catch them until the day is almost over and everyone is telling me about it on Facebook. Yesterday apparently, was National Coming Out Day. So I missed it, but people come out every day! Like people say when February is gone, “Black history happens all year round.”

I like this video because it’s about Asian American people coming out (or not) to their families, and the extra stress that often comes out of being queer and Asian American. Or, in some cases, Christian, queer, and Asian American. It can be a great combo when you’re comfortable in your own identity and have strong communities supporting you. Otherwise, it can feel really lonely. Via Color Lines:
