When Asian Week asked me to write an op-ed piece about the aftermath of Proposition 8 and how the issue of gay marriage ties into the Asian-American community, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about. After the an article exploring why San Francisco Chronicle ran Asians were the only ethnic minority to produce a majority of voters against Prop. 8, a reader commented on the Chronicle's website:
Why in the world would the Asian American community ally itself with the gays? The Asian American community [has] virtually nothing in common with the gays except maybe being minorities.
Of course, I had something to say about this. Read "Why Gay Marriage Is an Asian-American Matter."
