On June 20, E.T. Chong begins Slaysian Dynasty, a media installation that will serve as a space of dialogue and performance exploring the intersection of Asian Queer and Trans narratives and the representation of people of color in mass media and popular culture. “Becoming subservient dogs eating the crumbs of privilege falling from the master’s table,” the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community has often been scammed by white supremacy into subjugating other minorities and people of color. Slaysian Dynasty will unpack this perceived proximity to power.

Chong will present a subjective and historical timeline of the immigration of API peoples to the U.S. from the 1800s to the present, depicting the struggles and oppression they faced. The project invites immigration stories from the public. These stories will become part of a timeline that situates the subjective narratives of visitors in relation to the broader history of API migration and visibility in the US.


E.T. Chong is an activist, artist, and community builder. He focuses on creating platforms for marginalized communities. His current practice is focused on creating safe spaces for queer and non-gender binary minorities within the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community. He also curates events like Onegaishimasu, which donated all the profits to charities that benefit the queer API diaspora.
