‘Visibility Project’ portraits show LGBTQ Asian Americans in all their power

Community is a core tenet of G3S and through this platform, we seek to create a digital library of queer API storytelling. Thankfully, we are not alone in this mission and today want to highlight the work of Mia Nakano’s Visibility Project and Resilience Archives. The Visibility Project is the culmination of an eight-year labor of love, a photographic and oral record of over 200 queer Asians living in the United States. The Resilience Archives is a digital walking tour documenting
the contributions, memories, and historical moments of the LGBTQ
Asian-American and Pacific Islander community in the San Francisco Bay
Area. This week, we’ll be sharing other stories that further illustrate the power of the oral and written tradition to uplift and affirm our identities.
