Throughout this month, the Japanese American National Historical Society is hosting LGBTQ+-focused exhibits as part of its Pride Month celebration. These exhibits include works by renowned artist Midori, https://www.ranshin.com/ who is herself worthy of attention and praise.
Midori is a renowned Japanese American LGBTQA+ educator, making powerful statements with her powerful performances on racial identity and string art. You can watch one of her performances at the Seattle Erotic Festival below. This powerful video highlights from Midori’s politically charged performance “Kimono 2: What We Wear” https://vimeo.com/226566109 . Over the years, we have been proud to support this artist and her performances, and have gifted several kimonos to Midori to support her influential art.
