Gidra Order Form

We got a write up in Los Angeles Magazine! We’ve been invited to speak at an Asian American literature class at UCLA. Copies of Gidra are in UCLA’s Special Collections Library. Updated: We’ve also been invited to speak at UCLA’s Asian Movement Class.

Our first print issue is ready! You can use the order form above. “Gidra Returns: 50th Anniversary Issue and 50 Years of Asian American” filled with 8 decades and 100 pages of growing up Asian American even before the term was even coined. We begin with Mo Nishida as a very young child in Manzanar during World War II and end with a story about Chinese American transnational, transracial adoptee.

Our first print was to create prototypes and it was also a cry for help! We have help. We need a little more help. There are about 15 of us who work on the print issue and about 20 of us who work on the website and social media. Our second run was much more successful. We found our groove!
