The Gay Vegans

Say their names – in loving memory

Sickened. Not surprised.

Rethinking my actions, and inactions, toward white supremacy, racism, misogyny and hate.

The massacre in Georgia brought me to the realization that I am not doing enough.

And for today I am remembering those who are being mourned by so many:

Soon Chung Park

Hyun Jung Grant

Suncha Kim

Yong Ae Yue

Delaina Ashley Yaun

Paul Andre Michels

Xiaojie Tan

Daoyou Feng


We made a donation to the Los Angeles Chapter of Asian Americans Advancing Justice. It won’t be our last. (The photo above is from them).

Mike and I often talk about the reasons we love living in the Los Angeles area (almost six years now!). Every time we talk about it we mention the large and diverse Asian communities here that we love. While reading the numbers of those violently attacked, I realize I need to do more to love our neighbors, and those neighbors I don’t know.

Thank you for reading.
