With the month of May coming to a close, this also means that AAPI Month is ending. To end things on a happier note, here are songs by AAPI artists that are upbeat than last issue’s playlist.
Even though AAPI month is coming to a close, discussion and action towards the issues affecting the Asian community on both the local and global scales will not end here. We must continue to share the information we have and take action where we can in order to uplift everyone in our communities.
If you’re liking these playlists and wish to look at the older playlists I have curated, follow our Spotify!
Overachiever Magazine was started by Rehana Paul in October of 2018 to give a platform to all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities.
Our name is poking fun at the stereotype that all Asians are overachievers, especially Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. It’s also in recognition of all of us who have had no choice but to be overachievers: managing societal expectations, family obligations, and educational opportunities, all while fighting the patriarchy.
We have grown since then, putting out bimonthly issues (we are contributor powered: apply to write for our next one!), and weekly reviews of culture, and news that is important to us.
You can find announcements, more news, and get to know our staff on social media: give us a follow, and learn how you can get involved today!
We do not claim to speak for all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. We are just here to give them a place to speak for themselves.
