– Uniting Asian American & LGBTQ+ Identity –
Everyone has an identity. Whether that be rooted in race, sexual orientation, gender, religion etc., a person’s identity is a compilation of multiple identities that shape them into a unique individual. However, there are times when two or more of these identities clash, igniting a number of conflicts that leave emotional dents on our psyche, self-esteem, and our very being. One of them draws a seemingly impermeable border between racial and LGTBQ+ identity – but I hope to change that. Borderline Free aims to spread love and inspire all Asian Americans who are struggling with their gender or sexuality, in hopes of one day bridging the gap between racial identity and LGBTQ+ identity.
