As an immigrant, I have worked tirelessly so that I won't be labeled and marginalized as an "other".
As a queer man, I have struggled to not be seen or treated as a threat to mankind.

As a human being working for social justice, I have fought for long-term transformative change so that ALL components to those two halves I carry with me (and that take part in the people I interact with) can eventually find peace, acceptance, and the freedom to live without fear of others, or worse: myself.
