Sustaining Community: Queer Pacific Islanders
In the 2008 Prop 8 campaign to ban same sex marriage in California, Samoan/Tongan and other Pacific Islander communities were demonized by the media and U.S. based churchesthat many Pacific Islanders are loyal members ofas homophobic fanatics who hate gay people. In Sustaining Community: Queer Pacific Islanders Shaping California, Queer Pacific Islanders from Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia take front and center stage to dispel these myths and present narratives of Queer Pacific Islanders' struggles to proliferate and protect queer communities, fight for the betterment of Pacific Islanders and tell of their battles for social justice. The narratives are told through traditional and modern dance, dialogues and monologues, poetry, original music and video.
