Born from The Gaysian Project, this podcast aims to create a space in which we can explore the Queer Asian experience. Hosted by The Gaysian Project founder Maya Reddy, an American Born Confused Queer Desi, this podcast embarks on conversations with folx both within the Queer Asian community and outside of the community in an effort to empower our stories and experiences, and understand the assumptions and attitudes placed upon us. visit The Gaysian Project website for more info about upcoming events, projects, merchandise, and ways in which you can get involved (www.thegaysianproject.com) and follow us on instagram (@thegaysianproject).

enjoyed the show
I really enjoyed the topic and the engagement! lots of great insight into the culture overall. keep pushing out great content
Much needed podcast
As a multiracial Asian- Amerian and social worker, I am so thrilled that there is a new platform discussing identity, culture, sexuality, and race, and how the complexity of this intersectionality varies based on each individual's experience as an Asian American.
Looking forward to following along and I recommend this project to anyone interested in social justice and Asian-American cultural issues and stigmas.
Fearless representation that needs to be heard
This first episode was so inspiring! I can’t wait to continue to hear such an unrepresented, empowering perspective. Thank you! 🙏🏾
