The Visibility Project is a photographic portraiture series focused on the Queer Asian American identified community. All the participants have identified as female at one time and the project is inclusive to: trans, ftm, mtf, genderqueer, bisexuals, lesbian, gay, intersex, andro, two-spirit, or any other gender or sexual identifications. Definitions of Asian Americans are inclusive to the general: East, Southeast, South Asian, to mixed race, transplants, etc.

The project seeks to break down ethnic, gendered, and sexual stereotypes through the powerful and accessible media of photography and video. Please visit the website at visibilityproject.org for more information about the project.

The Visibility Project combines art, media and social justice to document the personal experiences of Queer Asian Americans. Our community is frequently overlooked, ignored, and disregarded by society at large. The cultivation of this project was a direct response to change that dynamic one face, one story, one participant at a time. The Visibility Project provides a platform that allows participants to self-identify, share their histories and experiences. The result is an unbelievably diverse representation of what it means to be a Queer Asian American that transcends linguistic, cultural, and generational barriers.

We hope the project serves as a network to connect our radical, strong, and endlessly creative community. We hope to continue building friendships and coalitions, sharing resources, visions, and stories. We hope the impact of the project continues to grow and expand as more cities are incorporated into the presentation of the Queer Asian American diaspora.
