I just took this survey with my mom. It was a good way to open up and discuss LGB issues that we normally wouldn’t talk about. If you have the time I suggest taking it—it was a very eye-opening experience that makes you think about how you view yourself and how you view the intersection between your culture, your sexuality, and your values.
(P.S. It only took like 20 minutes max so don’t be discouraged about the timing.)
A really great article about the rise of Asian-American designers in the fashion industry.
