These shorts explore the myriad of ways in which the LGBTQ+ community and the Asian American community intersect and work together. While some aim to directly address this intersection, through meditations on family, Asian American culture, and identity clashes, others feature characters learning to be both LGBTQ+ and Asian American successfully.
