Telling Our Stories Our Own Way w / Vichet Chum

(S5, EP 7) Trigger Warning: Episode will contain topics on personal Anti-Asian violence.  Queer Khmer American playwright Vichet Chum joins me as part of Season 5's "Our Becoming: An LGBTQ Asian Experience" for this week's episode.  This episode was recorded back in April 15th during Khmer New Year's.  We talk about the ongoing anti-Asian violence and his family's own experience with anti-Asian racism as a child. We discussed the controversy with VICE News and the Tuol Sleng Prison photo controversy, and how cultural appropriation and colonizing harms our Khmer community to learn history and begin the healing process.  Vichet shares his excitement over his upcoming plays that he's working on, and the goals that he seeks to amplify the Cambodian-American experience.  Check out this episode and follow Vichet on IG @vichetchum .
