You have heard many voices. Eventually, they will all sound alike and look alike even within marginalized communities.

Did you know there are marginalize voices/movements within marginalized communities? Have you heard of the plight of central asian immigrants after the bombing of WTC? They were mislabeled as middle eastern.

Have you heard of the american dance style called Punking? Popularized in the 70s and 80s as "Gay Dance", disco dance, waacking, or street jazz? You have seen it in MTV and now in most KPOP music video. However, the artwork is in constant erasure of its Californian gay upbringing due to the toxic CIS Dance Industry.

I'll be happy to tall to you about these passions and point you to the right person/communities who are holding the beacon of their existence.
