Last semester, AAPIRT Coordinator Maij Vu Mai (they/he) offered an intimate storytelling workshop in which they shared personal archival research of their own vulnerable connections and learnings with Queer AAPI Elemental Magic through their father’s legacy of mystic tending to bonsai trees, koi fishponds, canaries, and his own children.

After months of embodied synthetization and artistic world making in correspondence with these personal archives and memories, Maij offers an online public reading and showcase of the completed zine, Queer AAPI Elemental Magic.
