...a short story
tl;dr: writing the shit my friends and I want to see...even if the rest of America isn't ready yet! ;)
I write about not belonging. About feeling like you're too gay to be a good Asian but too Asian to be gay, at least in the "right" way. About being too "Westernized" for your parents (I believe mei jiu, or "lost cause," was the phrase used), but too unrelatable (a.k.a. "foreign") for your fellow Americans. About how meaningless even these labels are, and about the stereotypes they're built upon...
...and that are our responsibility to break. About the pain that comes from being a triple outsider, but also the perspective and irreverent humor it grants. About people's insecurities and tendency towards self-sabotage, but also about overcoming our worst natures. About humans doing humans (yes, in every sense of the word) while learning above all how to find meaning.
