Andy Su is a 1.5 generation Taiwanese American who recently graduated from college with a degree in rocket science. While they originally thought about exploring outer space, nowadays they spend most of their time building community spaces as an organizer for LBGTQ Asian American communities in LA. Still starry-eyed, they’ll follow the politics of space exploration and work towards the day militaries are defunded and the money reinvested in communities. But until imperialism, settler colonialism, and capitalism are dismantled, they’re content reading horoscopes and watching Steven Universe.
