K. talks about transitions, shifting perspectives of self-identification, the difficulties of being born able-bodied and being disabled in adult-hood, and the plurality behind the shifts.

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.
