Kat Evasco is the Co-Director of The Resilience Archives, which blends visual and performance arts, community archiving, and free educational opportunities to lift up the stories and histories of Bay Area LGBTQ Asian Pacific Americans. We do this through two key programs.

The Resilience Archives LGBTQ APA Digital History Tour is a living archive filled with photographs, media, and ephemera woven into an interactive map. We seek to break down barriers to accessing this knowledge, and share histories provided by movement leaders to present day organizers through arts and activism. Content is curated from personal and organizational archives, along with extensive research. This is a living breathing series. It is an evolving work in progress.

We are always looking for more contributions! Please let us know if you have a photo, story, or any other content to share.

Performing Resilience is a personal narrative storytelling and performance workshop open to storytellers who identify as LGBTQ APA. It was designed to create more spaces for LGBTQ APA stories to exist through live storytelling and performance.
