Hong Kong's pro-democracy politicians have been jailed, forced into exile or ejected from official posts. But if they boycott the next election, officials say, that could be illegal, too. I wrote about the decision facing the Democratic Party this Sunday:

“Wait times can now be measured in days” is never what you want to hear about hospitals. Horrifying stories of trying to get medical care in covid-swamped regions.

I wrote about the role English has played in changing China’s social, cultural, economic and political landscape and why rejecting it is part of the country’s Great Leap Backward. English is almost synonymous with China’s reform and opening-up policies.

In the past 4 months, I've buried myself in creating this short doc on China's stunning underground queer ballroom scene. There's so much love and support in the community. I hope this vid brings you as much joy as it did for me:
