About

Brown-skinned Asians have been silenced for far too long—our identities used as fillers, our cultures as backdrops for narratives that do not reflect the actual realities that we call ours. The Brown Orient is more than an acknowledgement of this underrepresentation in the global narrative. It is retaliation. It is rebellion from the status quo. It is a reminder that Asia is not a single-faced community, but rather is an array of diverse cultures—all equally deserving of respect and support. The most significant voices are the ones left unheard. The Brown Orient is a commitment to uplift the marginalized: women and LGBTQIA+ writers and artists from mainland and diasporic Brown Asia, who remain to be sidelined even among their own communities. The Brown Orient is a venue for their bold artistic expression, for discussion among creative minds long hindered to soar high, a melting pot of worlds, both reality and imagined, all rooted on identity and culture.

Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to women and LGBTQIA+ people from local/diasporic S/SE/SW Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East.
