My self-summary
Hello! I am new-ish to town and am looking for weirdo queer/QTPOC folks for hangouts/vent fests/meals/movies/hikes.

I identify as a radical queer Asian American. My pronouns are they/them. I have only really loved and connected with white people (thanks society), so I'm mostly only looking for other people of color to connect with and care for. The kind of people I invite in are:
- emotionally mature
- radically vulnerable
- passionate about something
- committed to personal growth

I'm also in this chapter of life where I feel limitless, intensely curious to learn from everyone I encounter, and wide open to new experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to Seattle last October from sunny, warm Austin. Been busy attending QTPOC political and healing events, tackling my to reading list head on, dancing (gaga), writing poetry and sketching more regularly.

I work at a stable, successful tech company.

I am anti-capitalist & anti-marriage, and think a lot about alternative economies and alternative family structures.

Maybe I could find 4 other folks and have it setup so one person would not have to work for a year and devote that time to their creative growth.

Or the US could get its shit together and implement a Universal Basic Income for everyone, including those who are undocumented.

I love a balance of arts&crafts, radical politics, and being outside. Recently: taking a pottery class, taking a Pratt blacksmithing class, learning the baby harp, registered for the Allied Media Conference, met Dean Spade, after work trips to Denny Blaine to observe the lapping waves, got a popcorn maker, discovering high CBD weed, being completely overwhelmed by Mad Max Fury Road.
I’m really good at
Leaving parties early.
Recommending good music.
Being attentive and really listening to the person I'm engaged with.
Keeping succulents teetering on the brink of death.
The first things people usually notice about me
My gender identity is confusing to folks, so this is a common occurrence. I hate going to public bathrooms :/

I have a functional, minimal, particular tomboy style that represents my philosophy of owning, using and caring for high quality goods for a long time.
