Held by Asian Pacific Islander Queer Women and Transgender Community on 12 June 2020 7:00 PM
The 16th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival, June 12-14, is just 3 weeks away!
Wen Liu and Estelle Davis have won this year’s APIQWTC scholarships. Congratulations to both for their impressive accomplishments! Wen Liu is a queer Taiwanese community organizer and graduate student in the Social-Personality Psychology Ph.D. Program at the City University of New York, Graduate Center. As an undergraduate at University of Washington, Wen co-founded the Queer People of Color Alliance, Youth for Middle East, and Chinese Speaking Queers. Wen additionally worked as a programming coordinator at Q Center, the LGBT resource center, advocating particularly for queer students of color. Wen has also organized East African, Latino, and Asian immigrant custodial staff by forming a multi-generational labor solidarity group called International Workers and Students for Justice to combat lay offs and workplace harassment. This summer Wen will conduct qualitative research on lesbian and bisexual Southeast Asian migrant workers in Taiwan to underscore how they have formed community and comradeship in their fight against capitalist exploitation. Thank you video from Wen. Sarah Estelle Davis is a second-generation queer Filipina American who will begin the Master’s in Public Health at San Francisco State University in fall 2011. She hopes to improve accessibility by training health care professionals in cultural competency. Estelle plans to develop frameworks that are particularly inclusive of LGBT, trauma survivors, and Asian American communities. She has worked eight years as a public health worker at organizations such as Center for Health Training, Fenway Community Health Center, and Marin AIDS Project. She is currently a legal worker at Communities United for Restorative Justice, an organization that combats the criminalization of young men of color and the displacement of low-income communities. As an undergraduate at Tufts University, Estelle examined the medicalization of polycystic ovary syndrome, the most common reproductive disorder in reproductive aged women. Estelle will be at the banquet to thank APIQWTC in person. Please DONATE to the Scholarship Fund today....read more
