with Eric C. Wat, mads lê, and James Huỳnh

In this vibrant conversation, writer and activist Eric Wat will be in 
discussion with mads lê (memory worker/scholar) and James Huỳnh 
(public health organizer/scholar) about his recently published book, 
Love Your Asian Body: AIDS Activism in Los Angeles (University of 
Washington, 2021). While the discussion will begin with Eric’s book –
a community memoir that centers the political activist labor of thirty 
Asian American AIDS activists during the 1980s and 1990s – the 
conversation will open to questions regarding queer of color 
genealogies that inspire multigenerational activisms; joy in 
community organizing; and the different ways of stewarding and 
sharing generational knowledges of activism, grief, and pleasure 
across queer of color communities.

Conversation will be Facilitated by Associate Professor Crystal Baik
