The purpose of AAPIRT’s annual zine, Sublime Divinations is to 1) provide a more spiritually expansive and exploratory creative space for LGBTQIA+ AAPI folks and their accomplices and 2) document and archive LGBTQIA+ AAPI stories and narratives around spirituality, faith, religion, and divinity in creative and accessible ways, so that we may have a clear blueprint of who we hope to become as a community. This year’s edition of Sublime Divinations will explore the divine relationships that Queer AAPI communities have built and sustained with our elemental friends- Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. How have Queer AAPI folks transformed and deepened our spiritual connection with nature’s sacred elements? How has nature shaped and formed our understanding of Queer AAPI spiritual identity?
