Showcasing new work, Take Out captures the freshness of contemporary expressive culture in queer Asian Pacific America. It brings together established and emerging artists to define their personal and collective vision as gays and lesbians. The visual, literary, and performance works in this anthology probe a variety of topics-inter-generational relationships, domesticity, pop culture, camp, Hollywood, fairy tales, and Asia. Take Out resists summary just as its contributors refuse limits on their artistic expression and attempts to objectify them as people.Distributed by Temple University Press for the Asian American Writers' Workshop Author note: Quang Bao is the current managing director of The Asian American Writers' Workshop in New York City.
