Love Your Asian Body
Oftentimes, the only narratives of the HIV/AIDS epidemic that reach the mainstream seem to be grim stories of victimhood and isolation. But Eric C. Wat, an author and historian who studies Asian-American HIV/AIDS activism in Los Angeles, is recentering our attention on queer experiences of community, solidarity, and joy in the face of collective loss.
Don't forget to support Eric's research by picking up a copy of his latest book, Love Your Asian Body: AIDS Activism in Los Angeles!
