On May 29, Netflix released its latest original, Always Be My Maybe, which stars comedic forces Ali Wong and Randall Park. The romantic comedy features Wong as a celebrity chef and Park as her childhood sweetheart, whom she reunites with after many years. Hyphen was thrilled to get a chance to speak with the stars about their writing process and about being Asian American in the entertainment industry.
Next month marks five years since the inception of Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE), which is a network comprised of 11 organizations fighting for justice through an intersectional lens. AACRE works with Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander refugees, immigrants, LGBTQ, incarcerated folks, artists, faith leaders, survivors and more! AACRE’s work has allowed them to reimagine a vision of liberation that is inclusive and intersectional. The five-year anniversary celebration is a momentous occasion, and AACRE will be celebrating their work with a Party for Justice on June 7 at 9:00 pm in San Francisco at the Westin St. Francis on Union Square.
