Subject

Oral history, aids activism, identity, Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention (ASAAP), Desh Pardesh, Khush, Desi, identity politics, arts festival

Description

In this oral history Dunstan Egbert describes how he started volunteering with the Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention (ASAAP), and Desh Pardesh. He also worked with Khush, but explains why he identifies more as a ASAAP and Desi participant than a Khush volunteer. During Khush, he was a dancer. He speaks about the need for a space like Desh for immigrant and third-culture youth and the rise of identity politics in the age of social media. He ends by giving an accountant’s perspective of Desh, and discusses their inability to balance politics and diversity in occupation of their board members.
