About Lanny Xiuzhu Li
Lanny Xiuzhu Li is a Shanghai & NYC-based queer photographer and visual artist from China. Before visual art-making, they finished their master’s in American Studies with a focus on Asian American history, Cinema Studies, and Queer Theories. Integrating the interest in theory with a passion for visual art, Lanny started to make multimedia projects that deal with the diaspora, social justice, sexuality, and gender identity. They hope their work can help create a strong voice for the queer community especially the Asian American queer community they regard as their chosen family.
