Born out of a desire to open up conversations about gender and identity within South Asian families and communities, Moving Truth(s) is a powerful anthology featuring stories by queer and transgender South Asians about and for family. Contributors share stories about connecting to mothers through cooking, teaching fathers about philosophy, and reconciling religious, adoptee, and gender identities. In its pages, contributors explore how to find support, where to find advocacy, and how to stay engaged with family, community, and culture in the face of homophobia and transphobia. On the one year anniversary of the anthology’s publication, a presentation will feature editors Aparajeeta “Sasha” Duttchoudhury and Rukie Hartman, along with several of the books contributors, to celebrate and discuss the powerful work.
The Moving Truth(s) anniversary celebration happens Saturday, April 23 at 6:00 p.m. at U District Store. The event is free. For more information, visit www.ubookstore.com or call (206) 634-3400.
