Make sure you tune into DIVA’s Instagram Live next Monday 10 May because LGBTQI advocate, athlete and ambassador Amazin LeThi is planning a takeover and it’s going to be awesome.
The DIVA edition will be part of Amazin’s ongoing Instagram Live series celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month. The aim is to amplify the voices of Asian LGBTQI people and allies.
This is something that Amazin is deeply passionate about. As an award-winning keynote speaker and cultural change leader, she has addressed governments around the world, Fortune 500 companies and international organisations including United Nations and The Prince’s Trust. Her numerous accolades include being named on DIVA’s Visible 100, in recognition of the brilliant work she is doing.
For this extra special Instagram Live, Amazin will be joined by Black Lighting star Chantal Thuy. Chantal is famous for playing fan favourite Grace Choi, the first Asian LGBTQI superhero on mainstream TV. You might also recognise the Canadian-Vietnamese actor from appearances on shows like Pretty Little Liars, Secretary and Matador, and Broadway productions like Tracy Letts’ Linda Vista.
Subjects up for discussion on the Live include Asian LGBTQI representation in Hollywood, allyship in action and the importance of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, especially during this difficult time for the Asian community.
DIVA magazine celebrates 27 years in print in 2021. If you like what we do, then get behind LGBTQI media and keep us going for another 27. Your support is invaluable.
