Honoring My Blasian Identity and Going Further w/ Rohan Zhou Lee

(S5, EP 5) In honoring Pride Month, Rohan Zhou Lee (They/Siya/祂 (Tā)), artist, activist, and founder of the Blasian March, joined me for this episode as part of the 5th season theme "Our Becoming: An LGBTQ Asian Experience).  They took the time out of their busy schedule to chat with me about the creation of the Blasian March, and how critical it was to have a movement that included Blasian community members, and to build Black and Asian solidarity in a time where Anti-Black and Anti-Asian violence has been escalating in recent times. Rohan shared their experiences growing up as both queer non-binary and Black and Asian, and how this would inform their work in the movement.  We talk more about self-care and sustainment in the movement and what work lies ahead in the fight against white supremacy.  Check out this episode and follow them @BlasianMarch on IG
