Silk Club presents QUIET!, a zine about Asian and Asian American identity. As Asian womxn/nb/femme+, our stereotypically introverted demeanor has been used to belittle and ridicule. In an attempt to both unlearn and embrace this given identity, our collaborators reflect on many aspects of Asian and Asian American life.
We currently have six committees, one of which is the Creative committee led by yours truly. Despite a fairly large demographic of Asians on campus and in Austin (and that includes mixed-race, South Asians, Southeast Asians, and East Asians), there aren't many spaces for Asian creatives. We hope to change that through art, activism, and solidarity. Our first creative project is called QUIET!, a zine for and by Asian and Asian American womxn/nb/femme+ creatives.
