Play • 12 min
This past week, I published an article addressing the cultural insensitivities of Queer Eye Japan. Lots of learnings and also four key lessons to share with you.   In this episode, we cover:
  • Feedback from the show
  • Following Western advice all of my life as a queer Asian man
  • Why Western ideologies don’t work for Asians
  • Embracing the edits
  • Doubting myself before publishing the article
  • Why all of our intersections and identities matter
  • Why it’s important to focus on the good

Bye! ♥️
