What we’ve been up to

iamloveworthy:

It has been a while since our last post and we wanted to update everyone on the whirlwind of activity that has taken place over the past week and a half.

The “I Am Loveworthy” piece originally published by HuffPost Gay Voices has been liked over 23K times

Andy’s essay was also translated into German and Korean. HuffPost Korea even ran the piece as their top story and it was so well-received, they plan on translating and publishing Andy’s previous piece about finding her mom in Korea.

All of our families are incredibly proud of the essay. And Andy’s mom in Korea was even able to read it since the piece was translated into Korean! She sent Andy this sweet text:

HuffPost Live interviewed Andy about the piece. She and Drew (depending on his work schedule) will be back on to participate in a segment about trans love stories. 

Andy was also interviewed about her essay on the The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM.

Our friends at Jezebel and Everyday Feminism among others were kind enough to republish the piece and share with their readers. 

In the midst of all this excitement, we packed up the car and drove a few hundred miles into Pennsylvania’s countryside to historic Gettysburg. Drew was asked by one his best friends to serve as the best man at his wedding.

The early summer wedding reception was held on the grounds of a Bed & Breakfast with a rustic barn. It even included a few four-legged creatures that Andy had a chance to befriend.

Drew looked really dapper in his tuxedo. Andy also ended up snagging a new dress for the special occasion.

Drew gave an excellent toast earning him many compliments among wedding guests. Surprisingly, Andy was approached by several people who complimented her on the piece!

Andy had an exciting meeting shortly after the wedding. She received a potential book offer from a digital publisher who was a fan of her writing. So Andy met up with the publisher to learn more about the offer. Nothing has materialized yet.

Do any of you listen to NPR? If so, you may have heard Andy on the airwaves yesterday afternoon talking about music she enjoys listening to as she taps away at the keyboard.

Also, Andy had some quality girl time with author and activist Janet Mock. The two had dinner at ABC Kitchen and caught up on life over a seven course dinner. 

And that’s that! We have both been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from everyone. We have over 3000 followers since starting this blog. We hope to connect with many of you in the weeks and months to come.

Thank you for joining us and being a part of our journey!

chrysanthemumandthesword asked: Hello! I was wondering, do you know of any book clubs or blogs that focus solely on books/novels (fiction or nonfiction) that have non-white leads, focus on minorities in the USA, or countries outside of western Europe? Accurate books of that type can be difficult to find and when I ask white family members I end up with novels like Memoirs of a Geisha. Sorry for the trouble!

Hi! Off the top of my head I can say that in New York the Asian American Writers’ Workshop has a ton of events going on all the time in the city and they have a blog that features posts from all Asian American writers. On tumblr, Cielrouge has posted extensive lists of book references with non white leads, and Diversity in YA, run by Cindy Pon and Malinda Lo, have daily recs as well. I hope this helps! If anyone knows anything else feel free to recommend!

(also sorry this got answered so late!!)

Things About My Week

commonplacecaz:

  1. An old college classmate of mine, Wendy Xu, aka angrygirlcomics, has a piece in the NY Historical Society’s new exhibition on Chinese-Americans and C-A art and I keep seeing ads for it all over The New York Times and it is just the coolest thing! You go, girl! Can’t wait to go see it for…

Thank you!!! It’s actually 13 pieces haha— I did all the pencil art for the comics that are up. They were based off a script Amy Chu wrote and then inked over by Mary Wilshire and lettered by Janice Chiang so the end result is a team effort! I hope you like the exhibit, I thought the end result was gorgeous! :D and good luck on your lecture— I’m sure you’re going to be amazing!
