Diasporic Disco

Austin Asian American Film Festival hosts its first queer prom, Diasporic Disco, as a fest fundraiser. Hosted by the hilarious Ivy Le (remember her from that event reco Hello Austin, like, one day above this?), this groovy gathering features performances by promqueen and DJ Phamstar, child care for kiddos 5-12 years old, a prom photo booth, refreshments, and awards celebrating queer Asian American filmmakers with AAAFF. They also gathered tons of resources for pre-prom research at aaafilmfest.org/diasporicdisco, so you can deep dive on disco’s influence in various Asian cultures. Highly recommended: How else will you get educated on Vietnamese New Wave? – James Scott
