But Where Are You Really From?: An Asian-American Struggle

But Where Are You Really From?: An Asian-American Struggle

by

Hosts and life-long best friends Angela Lin and Jesse Lin explore their identities as Asian-Americans through the lens of their first-generation upbringings and how those influences have shaped how they see the world and their place in it. Each episode explores a different topic of identity or common struggle, with many episodes featuring special guests from both the Asian & broader POC communities bringing their unique perspectives. These are thoughts from people your parents would be disappointed in. Angela and Jesse are not related, but might as well be. Instagram: @whereareyoufrompod

Drag queens and kings have become one of the more public representations of the LGBTQ community. But beyond the polished acts seen through mass media, drag can be something deeply personal and raw. This week, we’re joined by Untitled Queen, a drag artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Untitled’s work uses drag as performance art to both construct and deconstruct different facets of his identity.

Untitled shares with us all the behind-the-scenes of his journey with drag. We talk about his childhood growing up on Governor’s Island, all the way to his beginnings in drag. Along the way, we discuss how the drag scene has changed since he started, and how drag can be a powerful tool to explore self-identity. Finally, Untitled gives some parting advice for those of us about to embark on new creative ventures.
