SAAN Conference: Shifting Sands

  • University of Michigan (map)

My organization, South Asian Sexual & Mental Health Alliance (SASMHA), presented at UM’s SAAN (South Asian Awareness Network) conference, the premiere South Asian undergrad student-run conference. There, we presented a workshop on how pop culture stereotypes (in both Hollywood and Bollywood) affect perceptions of gender roles and sexuality in South Asian communities. We also recorded a live episode of our podcast, Brown Taboo Project.

Getting to meet and collaborate with dope South Asian creatives and activists is always going to be a fulfilling experience, especially when you know the conference will have great food!
