Island Woman Rise 🇵🇭✊🏼🎶 Incredibly inspired by the work and activism @rubyibarra has done for our community. Rapper, poet, activist, Filipina — she’s living proof that the future is truly female. Loved how we got to talking about my @kariktandance fam in her video for “Us” showing the beauty, grace and resilience of pinay women. But beside that, her lyricism reppin’ the jungles to the East Bay, to that PCN to build bridges to the homeland, is incredibly inspiring. Thanks for all you do and I hope you start dancing with KDC soon (haha). I’ll see you around sis! Full coverage from @identitylafest coming soon to @blurred_culture.

Paik had an impish sense of humor. TV Buddha (1976) always makes me smile.

That Adrian Piper video installation made me think of Nam June Paik. This is Paik's 1995 work, Electronic Superhighway.

in wake of all the pain, I found no other place to rest than in the sweetest kindness to myself.
over the years instructors taught me how to gain clarity on my anger - it’s always been me: a time I gave up my power, a time I ignored myself and my truth, a time I fucked my intuition, a time I hated my body, a time I chose something I know I didn’t want. Over and over again, it all added up to me. As soon as I could see, I felt so free. Free to let go of the shame for all the shit I did. And begin. Again. And again and again.

I woke up with a dream and I can’t help it - grief isn’t black and white.
Or neatly stacked. You can’t tell from someone’s Instagram if they’re going to kill themselves soon.
Grief colors my world a trillion paths and I wish someone would just hold me and ask me what I loved so much to make it hurt. No, I don’t want to stay there but damn, there’s nothing as terrifying as feeling utterly alone inside pain.
Gratitude for this moment, to be alive and write the bits that come up. This is part of my human experience.
In the dream he was still alive. I felt the weight of his bones. I kissed his neck. He didn’t move away. When I woke up I felt a heart-opening shame for having been so closed off before. I said hello to his mom and she was happy for me to be there. Oh the power of dreams. I said, “Of all the stories I made up about his death, I can’t believe this is the one that’s true!!” And then I woke up. To pair two extremes - reality and dreams. And so it seems, my tears still fall in streams.

I was honored to present the Linda Mabalot New Directors/New Vision award at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. Then I had a strong drink. #RepresentationMatters #laapff2018 #asianamericanfilm #AsianAmericanArtists

I got the chance to interview the creators of the groundbreaking new web series @mercymistress for the latest Interrobang episode of my YAPIT pod! Subscribe to Why Are People Into That?! now to hear my convo w @yinq13 & @poppyrepublic about BDSM as healing, sex work as a consent ritual, and the perks of crop tops in winter! #mercymistress #yinq #poppyliu #bdsm #kink #fetish #bondage #sexpodcast #kinkpodcast #asianamericanartists #queermakers #queerculture #bdsmculture

If you’re in Philly head over to the Asian Arts Initiative to check out their 25th anniversary exhibition ‘Then and Now’ on until 17 August.

it’s a rainy day in San Miguel. the City is quieter as drops of water slap abundantly on cobblestone, filling streets like swimming pools inside rivers. you can shiver with the coolness, and welcome it like the summer will never know. One month until summer and in some places it’s still snowing but here? You’ll find humans huddled under umbrellas under dark cloudy skies. And maybe you will ask yourself, “why am I here?” To which each drop whispers back — “you choose. you fucking choose.”

skirt skirt—
today I got sucked into a Netflix limbo & have hardly left my room.
thing is, I used to feel like shit for being introverted because my big family of mostly extroverts always criticized me.
it wasn’t until graduate school that I realized introverts are a normal, healthy part of the population and I am allowed to spend my time however I like.
ever had one of those times when you were being yourself and other people judged you for it? Yeah, fuck judgment. It’s yucky.
