QueerWOC of the Week: 00:06:53
Alice Wu, producer, writer and director of “The Half of It”. @ThatAliceWu
Not every love story is a romance. The Half of It. The film follows Chinese high schooler, Ellie Chu, who lives in the fictional white town of Squahamish with her father. She chooses to help a boy win her crush, local hottie Aster Flores, and teen hearts get broken—a classic teenage rom-com, but with a queer twist.
 “If you dont have the word for something, how could you think that you are that thing?”
The Half of It has been nominated for the Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Director, and at 50 years young this is also a huzzah that our wildest queer dreams can come true at any age!
Her signoff - Go queer nerdy asians!

Letter from Calendula
What to do with that strap you dont want? Do you throw away a perfectly good strap just because it was a gift from my ex girlfriend’s crush? Any bright ideas?
