Queer Asian American/Asian Diaspora is a collaborative project between Speaking Truths Series and i2i.

The show will be held on Wednesday August 7 at the National Cambodian Heritage Museum. The show starts at 7:30pm.

$5 suggested donation, but we won't turn anyone away.

Most are not performers, but they have important stories to share: stories with experiences that express the diversity within the queer Asian community.

Speaking Truths Series is produced and hosted by Ada Cheng, a professor-turned-storyteller, solo performer, and storytelling show producer. She has been featured at storytelling shows and performed her two solo shows all over the country. Ada is the producer and the host of four storytelling shows, including Pour One Out: A Monthly Storytelling Series, Am I Man Enough?: A Storytelling/Podcasting Show, Talk Stories: An Asian American/Asian Diaspora Storytelling Show, and Speaking Truths Series.

Speaking Truths Series seeks to bring performance art to community spaces. This show is open to and inclusive of people of all identities, backgrounds, and experiences.

National Cambodian Heritage Museum is wheelchair accessible.
