wait y'all is #praisintheasian a thing?? because i’ve seen a little bit on instagram and a lot more on twitter but it doesn’t seem to be picking up nearly as much speed here, which is somewhat disappointing, as asians (and especially non-east asians) and pacific islanders are so often left out of things that desire to show diversity and are often forgotten about when the term “poc” is brought into play, and i think it’s wonderful that we have something like this for us now. while i’m too nervous to post an actual picture of myself (and thus reverted to a drawing haha), it makes me so, so happy to see other asians and pacific islanders of all countries—not just east asians, which are so often the only ones of us acknowledged if they are mentioned at all—being able to show who they are and our existence with pride. we—all of us—exist too. this tag makes me so happy, and i’m so sad to see it’s not getting as much attention as other tags of this type have received in the past.
selamat to all my fellow filipinos on the tag!! 🇵🇭🇵🇭
