Teresa Nguyen

Teresa is a non-binary second gen Viet-Am community organizer and multi-media visual artist from Portland, OR. Much of their work centers in coalition building with queer youth and their QTBIPOC community, and learning how to navigate claiming a radical SE Asian identity. Their visual work explores the sensory experience of self love through food, making snapshot doodles of honest emotions, and storytelling to reclaim diaspora.  They believe in the everyday practice of dismantling systems of oppression through tender acts of love: snacks, bad puns for anyone who will listen, a kitchen table to sit at and just be.
