Asian Pride Project + NQAPIA’s Public Service Announcements

If you’ve visited this site before, you know that we love bringing more queer, trans and questioning Asian Pacific Islanders visibility in the media. Our movements are often ignored and sidestepped when we’re not making and being a part of the media and it is for that reason that we’re extremely excited and proud to share with you the work of The Asian Pride Project and The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) in their creation of several Public Service Announcements where parents of Queer and Trans Asian Pacific Islanders share their stories of support and love for their children. unnamed

Here’s more from the creators of the PSAs:

Asian Pride Project is excited to announce the first airings of multilingual Public Service Announcements (PSAs) with parents expressing their love for their Asian American and South Asian LGBT children.  

Bilingual videos will be first aired THIS WEEK in Hindi, Tagalog, Korean, Japanese and Mandarin on KTSF and LA18 TV in California, stations that serve two of the nation’s largest Asian American TV Markets. 

Watch this heartwarming PSA from Deanna, a Chinese Mandarin-speaking mom, expressing her love for her gay son.

And don’t forget to share the videos with friends and family.


About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com
