Here is some of the writing and speaking I’ve done elsewhere, on the Internet and beyond. I have covered local programs and events, called for boycotts of local businesses over racism, reviewed television shows and restaurants, and written on a variety of topics for a number of Asian American and Pacific Islander publications.  I’m always looking for more opportunities to write on issues of race, religion, sexuality, and justice, and if you have any ideas, please do pass them on.
