Artist's Description

My day 32 illustration for the #100daysofqueerwomenandfemmes project is done! Xiaopan https://www.instagram.com/mcspamela/ & Raheesa https://www.instagram.com/rlego8/ are an adorable couple and it was so much fun getting to illustrate them.

Xiaopan shared, "I’m really excited that you’re doing this. … I’ve attached a picture of my wife and I—a picture taken for our one year wedding anniversary. I look at that picture and I see how much it took for us to get to that picture. We met in grad school and got married after a year. Although she presents more masculine to most people, she loves showing her femininity in subtle ways whether that’s through simple studs in her year, wearing her hair up, or the color of shirt she’s wearing. My favorite “feminine” thing about her is her smile. It’s sweet, kind, subtle, but bold in its warmth all at once. The point is—we show each other what love is every day and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t thank Mother Earth for her. I want to participate in this project because I want to put good into the world through art. I want to send out love and positivity and STRENGTH and HOPE. I love my queerness. I love my femininity. I love my masculine tendencies in personality. I love queer love because it is a special kind of love, especially between two womxn. I also want to participate because I don’t feel like enough people consider Asian-American womxn people of color. So often are we put into the category of model minority and I feel like there’s a lack of acknowledgement that Asian-American womxn are also minorities and people of color and not all of us are affluent and white-washed and “perfect”. I come from a childhood where sometimes my dad didn’t have any money to buy us something off the dollar menu at McDonald’s. I also carry trauma on my back. I don’t want to be washed away just because of the stereotypes in society."
