After months of campaigning by immigrant and LGBTQ rights groups, Nicoll Hernández-Polanco was freed from her detention by ICE. Her story, written by Kris Hayashi of the Transgender Law Center, is a story of a young woman who escaped the broken immigration system, and how she was criminalized and psychologically tortured simply for being young and transgender.  

Kristina Wong holds up a mirror to activists, her audience, and herself.

May lit features two of Sally Wen Mao's poems, imagining where Anna May Wong might have gone if she had a time machine.

Delicate rice paper skin,
nails that amazingly collect the day’s pollution
without touching outside air,
and thin blue veins
pumping the blood of 100 year-old stories.
