Bond is a 104 page visual essay that explores intersectionality via mixed racialness and queerness within the category “Asian American”.

The text is comprised of selected passages from relevant readings and transcriptions of interviews conducted with friends and family. The choice of readings is meant to reflect my own experience of learning about these topics of race and sexuality through reading the experiences of others, and I picked passages that were key in helping me to understand myself.
