Chisago City, MN
Ever since I can remember I have been asked this question. People are quick to assume I’m white but also treat me a little differently because I don’t look completely white. They seem something off about me. I’m a proud queer multicultural and before the pandemic I didn’t hesitate to tell people about my heritage. Then, all of sudden, there were more anti-Asian and especially anti-Chinese events. People were being killed on the street. So here it is: I am a proud Chinese descendant and what I am is human.
