March General Meeting

March 12, 2012

Please join our next General Meeting 3/16!

In this month’s meeting, we shall be observing the relationships between Asian American and Western culture on homosexuality.

*Why is homosexuality tabooed within the Asian narrative?

*Was homosexuality always viewed through a negative scope in Asian Culture?

*How has Western influences alter, or form permanent fixtures of identities within the Asian context?

*Have we heard any homophobic things we heard from family or friends?

*How are our identities formed and how are we viewed by those that are not within our community?

*What are some acceptable behaviors in both Asian and Western culture that are usually deemed homosexual but can pass as harmless play?

We shall be exploring the different narratives that form hegemonic views of homosexuality within the pan-Asian and Western context. Fun and engaging group activities are also included within our agenda to help us build a better understanding of the topics we are trying to convey.

Think you’ll be hungry? Snacks and light refreshments will be served~ After the meeting we can further congregate on what we would like to eat.

Hope ya’ll can make it!
