Interview with MLin of API Equality Northern California
MLin is a community organizer at API Equality Northern California, originally from San Jose, CA. They identify as a queer gender non-conforming Chinese American. As a student, they were actively involved in student organizing and archival research relating to the history of minority groups on campus. They graduated from Chapman University with a B.F.A. in film production, with an emphasis in sound design. Since moving back to the Bay Area, Mlin has been strongly drawn to living out their identity politics through both their community-based work and personal relationships. In their free time, they enjoy working on behind-the-scenes videography, listening to international pop/alternative rock music, and spending time with loved ones.
