Artists Rep CreditsComing Out and Overcoming
Kelly Novahom (she/her) is a queer Filipino/Mexican American creative, educator, community organizer, and volunteer/member of APANO’s Art & Media Project, a group that centers the work of creatives and cultural workers in advancement of social justice issues. As a Program Manager at Center for Community Engagement at Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling, her work focuses on bringing social justice focused continuing education opportunities to writers, educators, and counselors.
Her current focus is providing affinity spaces for Asian Pacific American queer and trans children, youth, and adults and their supportive families through art and community spaces to thrive and build community. Coming Out & Overcoming is a storytelling project that seeks to provide that connection and opportunity to center our narratives and ask ourselves what it means to fully live in our multiple identities as queer and trans Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI).
