A Day in the Queer Life

A Day in the Queer Life of Asian Pacific America

A Day in the Queer Life of Asian Pacific America (ADQLAPA) is a new digital exhibition by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center (APAC) documenting queer life in Asian American and Pacific Islander communities throughout the country.

An extension of APAC’s 2014 digital exhibition A Day in the Life of Asian Pacific America, ADQLAPA borrows the former exhibition’s attention to the everyday, its notion of examining life all across Asian Pacific America, including lesser-known geographic pockets and lesser-known dimensions of experience. ADQLAPA features both solicited and crowd-sourced media—video shorts, photography, boomerangs, video poems, and a longform essay—divided into several channels, to offer multiple entry points and a nuanced engagement with queer Asian American and Pacific Islander life.
