THE EFNIKS COVER STORY FOR MAY, INTERROGATING THE MODEL MINORITY MYTH ON RACE, ETHNICITY, GENDER, & SEXUALITY
THE EDITOR'S NOTE
While many publications take on the “Asian themed” essays, and celebrate with lists of accomplished Asians, the REMODEL Cover Story focuses specifically on queer and trans experiences of Pacific Islander and Asian humans.
This month’s contributors create a collection fiercely intent on not only re-modeling / flipping / reversing / and turning on its head what “being Asian” is, but also what it is not. Here, for REMODEL month, we are here to tell you: We are NOT your model minority.
HISTORY, CONTEXT, AND IMPACT
We are elevating QTPOC experiences, publishing art and short-story fiction, and soon we will launch our first summer writing program for young QTPoC voices. We are growing, and you can help us do so much more.
OUR STORIES, EXPERIENCES, AND PERSPECTIVES
In June, EFNIKS will be talking about QULTURE
This Pride Month, we are sharing more of the stories that bring life to queer & trans culture, elevating the stories that shape our spaces, our identities, and how we interact with the rest of the LGBTQ world.
