Welcome to Episode 31 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! It’s PRIDE Month here in the U.S… so Gen and Ted discuss the history of PRIDE Month and celebrate a few notable Asian American and Pacific Islander LGBTQ+ activists. There are so many influential API activists in the LGBTQ+ community… from Kyoshi Kuromiya to Kitty Tsui to Gil Mangaoang... and that’s just a few of them! We also take time to talk about the work fo the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance, The Visibility Project, and the Asian Pride Project.
