Identity Is A Moving Target

A conversation between authors, Lauren J. Sharkey and ND Chan on Asian American identity, adoption, being queer and being seen.

Model minority? White on the inside? No way. Asian-American women, nonbinary people, and femmes are often portrayed as one-dimensional. Authors Lauren J. Sharkey and ND Chan discuss the complexities of their own identities as Asian-American writers with rich personal histories. Photo by Seth Casteel, via The Guardian.
