In this episode, we're joined by Tai, who is a freelance creative director. His hunger for building community ultimately led to the creation of Naarak in August of 2022, and he is now an event organizer in the gay API NYC nightlife scene. 

In this episode, we chat about:

  • Community resilience and fostering an environment where gay API have an accepting night-life space 
  • Coming into queer identity and finding a way to navigate that
  • Intersectionality of queer-ness and Asian-ness as an adoptee
  • The origins of Naarak initially starting with small gatherings and eventually expanding to larger events
  • The difficulties of having open conversations and really listening to one another
  • Challenging API stereotypes and demonstrating the community's willingness to engage and contribute to the city
