Tradewind Arts is an organization devoted to illuminating and empowering the Asian Pacific American (APA) voice through diverse creative media, particularly in the theatrical arts. Artists featured include: Zack Lesmeister is a mixed genderqueer poet. Their work is fluid; celebrating the multitude of their identities, while begging for a world of possibility. Forgoing a world of harassment and exclusion, they build upon the Vietnamese-American poets that come before them and people like Kim Chi, a drag queen, who prioritizes queer Asian femininity despite a family who knows nothing of her success. The poems they write serve not only as proof of survival, but as justice to a world that views them and the people they hold dear anything less than human.
