[APAHM 2019] D.R.A.G.: Diasporic Representations of Asians + Gender

CU Asian Pacific American Heritage Month - APAHM presents our official Closing Ceremony 2019- D.R.A.G.: Diasporic Representations of Asians + Gender.   Join us in concluding the month’s worth of celebrations for FREE food, FREE bubble tea, and a FREE show at the Earl Hall Auditorium. The event will showcase a Q&A session and performances from two inspiring artivists, whose work epitomizes notions of "commotion" as they strive to champion Asian-American representation amidst their challengings to the gender binary.  Kindly cosponsored by: Queer & Asian; Liga Filipina; Korean Students Association; Chinese Students Club; Gay Health Advocacy Project; Hong Kong Students & Scholars Society; Asian American Alliance; and Institute for Research on Women, Gender, & Sexuality Sponsored by: Yaso Tangbao and Gong Cha ☆ ☆ GUEST STAR ☆ ☆ This year, we are honored to be featuring YUHUA HAMASAKI and ALOK-VAID MENON.
