VISIBILITY PROJECT BOOK RELEASE
This dynamic evening includes a book launch from the Visibility Project!
A series of intimate portraits focused on the queer Asian American women and trans community. This retrospective of the Visibility Project lifts up this traditionally marginalized community, through carefully, mindfully, and intentionally moving the spotlight onto the fierce and proud participants of the project. It includes over 80 portraits of QAPIs from New York to Little Rock to Chicago and of course, San Francisco.
Visibility Project Director, Mia Nakano, and collaborators Monna Wong and Tracy Ngyuen developed educational curriculum to help educators utilize the Visibility Project photos and extensive oral history film interviews as teaching tools. The lesson plans are meant as prompts for folks as young as 11 through adulthood. It begins with key guiding principals to cultivate a safe intentional space to teach and learn.
