Support Kit Yan – An Award-Winning Trans POC Artist & Friend to QWOC+ Boston

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on July 13th, 2011

Transgender Asian American artist Kit Yan has been creating spoken word for almost a decade, bringing his art and activism to the world. He has encountered unfortunate circumstances that are creating barriers on his journey of bringing queer, trans and Asian art to communities around the country.

As a strong community of queer and trans people of color, we — QWOC+ Boston, who he proudly supports every single year — should consider helping him get back on tour and back into the studio. Through his Kickstarter campaign he’s taking pre-sale orders for albums and offering lots of other exciting merchandise and incentives. Please consider donating a few dollars to keep Queer and Asian art alive! It’s really easy and takes only a moment of your time.

By donating just $10, you will receive a digital copy of Kit Yan’s new album one week before it’s release!

For just $30, you can receive the awesome limited-edition “My Gender is Fuck You Mind Your Business” tote bag with a copy of the new album inside!

There are many more wonderful rewards for various contributions including tickets to a house show, personalized poems, and producer credit on his album!  Check them all out at Kit Yan’s Kickstarter Campaign!
