Nearly a decade after “Miss Saigon” closed on Broadway, a revival is on its way. But the musical’s racist, sexist, violent messages about Asian women, white American men, and the Vietnam War don’t belong on stages in 2013.We’re not buying “Miss Saigon.” Join us. http://bit.ly/missedsaigon

I am a Korean adopted, physically disabled woman, and this is my truth: My beautiful, complicated, and unique body utterly exists.  It shatters your tired, conventional stereotypes with its glorious incongruities.  It is wildly unpredictable and powerful as hell.  My Asian body is so much more than your two-dimensional representations.

I am a Vietnamese woman.  This is my truth:  My mother tried six times to leave our home country after the war in hopes of a better life.  Each time we were caught at the border and sent back.  Because of her perseverence we finally succeeded on the 7th try.  It took several on-foot border crossings, a safe house, two fishing boat trips, two refugee camps, and six months for us to get to the United States.  My aunt, already living in the States, sponsored us.  My mother worked two jobs and went to school full time the first few years just to make a life for us.  I started in ESL classes, and 25 years later I am now pursuing a medical degree.  My Vietnamese name was torn apart and mocked on the playground so much I changed to an American first name when I got naturalized to make things easier. I am queer.  I am somewhere between masculine and feminine.  I was born in Saigon and now a US citizen living in Minnesota.  Miss Saigon missed the boat my family and I took to get here.- Vi-Anh
