Wednesday, May 12 at 6pm: AAPI Speaker Shaan Dasani
Register here to attend! Los Angeles based actor, performer & speaker Shaan Dasani brings his rap poetry storytelling piece I GOT A STORY TO TELL YA to Acalanes High School, to deliver a powerful message about growing up, self-acceptance and rising above hate. As a South-Asian transgender man, Shaan works to blaze trails in the entertainment industry.  He’s been covered by the NEW YORK TIMES in their piece “THE TRANS ACTORS CHALLENGING OUTMODED IDEAS OF MASCULINITY,” and in 2018, the BONOBOS brand picked Shaan as a representative for their #EvolveTheDefinition campaign which sought to jumpstart a conversation around broadening ideas of masculinity.  Despite this, his work doesn’t center around masculinity, but rather, humanity, as his experience has taught him that if we want to live our best lives, we have to start by giving people the room to live theirs. After the performance, there will be opportunity for questions, conversations and thoughts.
