We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Roxane Gay, Larissa Pham & Kim Fu in Conversation With Lidia Yuknavitch

February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Kink (Simon & Schuster) is a groundbreaking anthology of literary short fiction exploring love and desire, BDSM, and interests across the sexual spectrum, edited by lauded writers R. O. Kwon (The Incendiaries) and Garth Greenwell (Cleanness), and featuring a roster of all-star contributors including Alexander Chee, Roxane Gay, Carmen Maria Machado, and more. Kink opens an imaginative door into the world of desire, with stories portraying love, desire, BDSM, and sexual kinks in all their glory with a bold new vision. Kink’s stories explore bondage, power-play, and submissive-dominant relationships; we are taken to private estates, therapists’ offices, underground sex clubs, and even a sex theater in early 20th-century Paris. While there are whips and chains, sure, the true power of these stories lies in their beautiful, moving dispatches from across the sexual spectrum of interest and desires, as portrayed by some of today’s most exciting writers. Kink contributors Roxane Gay (Hunger, Difficult Women), Larissa Pham (Pop Song), and Kim Fu (The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore) will be joined in conversation by Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Verge and The Book of Joan.
