I wish I could live near home…


I wish I could live near home and be out but because I can’t I live away to be free and happy. ‪#‎GaysianFaces‬ ‪#‎SALGBTUK‬

People try to make me realise that I am different from them. But I feel the same as them. I am proud to be Gaysian. #SALGBTUK #GaysianFaces

Last week I got a call from the Independent that Gaysian Faces made it on the Rainbow List 2015: Ones to Watch.

It was a nice surprise, for the past couple of months… it’s been quite an organic journey.

I have to give credit to Kip Fulbeck, his book Part Asian/100% Hapa inspired me to do Gaysian Faces.

My sincere thanks and gratitude to all the participants who have taken the time to share their stories with me and all of you.

Thank you to the Rainbow List Judges and the Gaysian Faces supporters for nominating me.

I’ll be heading back to San Francisco (where I’m originally from) for three weeks to visit my mum. San Francisco is home to Trikone;  the oldest South Asian LGBTQ organisation in the world. I’ll be reconnecting with old friends from Trikone and they will be sharing their stories with you too. 🙂

In solidarity,
