What’s the difference between gender euphoria and gender dysphoria? I heard that they were different but I’m not exactly sure what they both mean.

Euphoria and dysphoria are opposites. Dysphoria in gender or otherwise means an intense or nagging feeling that something is WRONG and BAD. It can be overwhelming or even nauseating. Euphoria is an intense good feeling, like something is very right. It’s so strong it can make you cry or jump around for joy! I’m of the opinion that it’s gender euphoria (feeling that your identity is Right and Good for you) is what makes a person trans, more than dysphoria. Which is not to say dysphoria is uncommon or is always less of a part in someone’s identity, just that you don’t need it to be trans. - mod Kathy

Indigo’s little siblings! That’s right, two sets of twins!

The first two on the left are named Caden and Kathy! A trans boy that loves gardening and a girl that loves to build and come up with ideas.

The last two on the right are Jayden and Jordan, two sleepy little babbies. They don’t do much but Jordan tends to wake up in the middle of the night, perhaps from bad dreams?

May 11: Issue- Being a Statistic of the Model Minority

By Kathy Tran, APIASF/GMS Scholar

A big issue that I face in my AANHPI community is the fact that we are seen as the “model minority.” In other words, we were once distinguished as low-income laborers and immigrants, but now we are seen as successful and educated contributors to society. Sounds great right? WRONG.

Since a young age, I have been fed these stereotypes about the model minority, and you can even call me the poster child of the model minority. Out of all my friends, I played the violin, I got the Principal’s honor roll, I was great at Math, I enrolled in Honors and Advanced Placement classes, and I wanted to go to college. I have always lived up to these stereotypes of our model minority that my community was shocked when I declared a major that was not up to society’s expectations.

There’s a sweeping generalization that many AAPI students pursue the medical field and become doctors when they grow up. I want to become a politician or lawyer one day, and it was something that my family and friends could not accept. Being a statistic of the model minority has hindered people’s acceptance of my passions to find a career outside of the medical field. Being a statistic of the model minority has also made society tell me that a young Vietnamese womyn like me will never survive in politics.
