@jameelajamilofficial has used her platform as an actor to call for an industry-wide reassessment of beauty standards. For promo images of the final season of @nbcthegoodplace , she insisted that her body remain unretouched and reminded us that no matter what size we are, it’s perfectly normal for our skin to fold over our clothes. Look up her conversation with @cthagod for @hollywoodreporter ’s Emerging Hollywood series, where she talks about the dangers of call out culture and what we can do to shift historically oppressive beauty standards. Was also moved by the stories she shared about being bullied growing up in the UK and how she moved to America on a whim via @dopequeenpheebs ’s @wnycstudios podcast Sooo Many White Guys.

Japanese-British singer, songwriter, and model Rina Sawayama isn’t shy about her identity or sexuality. When she released a bright pop single titled “Cherry”🍒 last year, she spoke about her reluctance in speaking about her pansexuality while in a relationship with a man. In an interview with @vice , @rinasonline said, “It’s the truth for a lot of bi and pan people—they don’t feel authentically queer when they’re in heterosexual relationships, and that is what the song is about.” 📸 by @clarkfranklyn for @clashmagazine
Japanese-American singer-songwriter Mitski is taking a hiatus from music after five years of nonstop touring and performing. In her music, she covers themes of belonging, melancholy, and isolation.

In part mini-memoir, part mini-essays “I’m Afraid of Men,” @vivekshraya chronicles her exploration of identity, the performance of gender, and the ways in which transphobia creates lasting trauma. 🦋🦋🦋 When she’s not writing or teaching classes at the University of Calgary, she’s setting stages ablaze with her ferocious musical talents 🌼🌼🌼 Tag your favorite #asianglow artists below!

We celebrate our queer icons all year long! June is recognized as #pride month, but being L G B T Q I A + is part of our identity all year long. So while this month of hyper visibility is important, remember that your allyship, advocacy, or support should translate to structural and systemic change beyond a confined gesture within one month. 💥 💥 💥 💥 💥 What makes you proud? Seeing people like @patrickstarrr glowing in all their glory and becoming a star in the online beauty community makes me proud!

Few facts to know about Priyanka Chopra: 👑She won the Miss World pageant in 2000. 🌟She was initially set to study aeronautical engineering, but started a career in Bollywood instead. 🎖In 2016, the government of India honored her with the Padma Shri, which is basically one of the country’s biggest honors you can receive as a civilian. ⚡️She’s been named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world annnnd Forbes listed her as one of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. 🎬Her role as Alex Parrish in ABC’s Quantico marked the first South Asian to headline an American network drama series. 😇She’s been appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. So she is basically an angel.

Actor, writer, director @vchhibber can be seen on CBS’s The Red Line, a show produced by @ava that explores the complicated aftermath of a Chicago police shooting. As someone who has been in the entertainment industry for a decade, he’s spoken out about the new wave of representation and what that means for South Asians. 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 “The Indian-American experience is terribly nuanced, diverse and compelling; your experience can be completely different depending on where your parents were from in India (Punjabi, Marathi, Gujarati ) and where you grow up in America (small town in Georgia, big city in New England, Southern California ). We have storytellers out there who are ready to tell those stories, they just need a little help, and it’s our responsibility as a community to do just that, help. Help by investing in their projects. Help by watching their movies at the theater. Buy tickets or rent them on iTunes and VOD. Help by dropping them a few bucks on their gofundme pages. Help by getting the word out. To me, this is the next step.” #asianglow isn’t just about individual excellence, it’s about making sure a win for one is a win for the entire community💫
“I grew up never seeing myself on screen, and it's really important to me to give people who look like me a chance to see themselves. I want to see myself as the hero of any story.

Thoughts on the statement @constancewu released after her cryptic tweets? 🤳🏽🤳🏽🤳🏽 It’s not easy being in the spotlight. Your every word and move is scrutinized, and so much happens that we never see. Her desire to challenge herself in new roles beyond Jessica Huang on @freshofftheboatabc makes sense. She’s played this character for years, and though it’s what helped put her in the spotlight, we’re ready to see her flex her creative muscles in new ways. We’re with you Constance 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
@gemma_chan in custom @tomford for her first #metgala 🧖🏻♀️ Watching these @voguemagazine videos showing the prep process for all these fits is a reminder of how much work it takes for people to look this good for these events. Hair, makeup, designers, stylists, tailors, embroiderers, assistants...it truly takes a village.

We’re allowed to cry without being weak. We’re allowed to break without being broken. We come from a culture of strength and resilience, but we are allowed to be fully formed, fully figuring it out, fully complex. #APAHM #asianglow
What made @lanacondor ’s portrayal of Lara Jean in the Netflix adaptation of @jennyhan ’s NYT Bestseller “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before significant? Lana played the romantic interest and lead in a teenage love story without emphasizing or erasing her Asian identity. She was allowed to be funny, sweet, shy, bold, and sincere all at the same time. 💐💐💐💐💐 Looking forward to seeing more of Lana as her acting career continues to bloom. #APAHM #asianglow
#asianglow is about reclaiming our beauty and rejecting the fetishizing, dehumanizing ways we’ve been portrayed by people who never understood how powerful we really are. 💫💫💫💫💫 #asianglow is about embracing beauty among the vast shades, shapes, orientations, and expressions across the Asian diaspora. #APAHM #asianglow
Historically, yellow has been a significant color in Asian cultures, specifically in China. It symbolizes glory, wisdom, harmony, happiness, and most importantly, royalty. 💛💛💛💛💛 We come from a lineage of royalty and resilience, but this isn’t necessarily the message we’ve gotten from history books and media representation. Leave a 👑👑👑if you’re proud of your ancestry and the resilience it represents! #APAHM #asianglow
