Queer and trans Asian existence in “the Midwest” at large and Minnesota in particular is still often difficult to conceive, to believe, and to be. Interstate, first rehearsed and workshopped in New York, took on new significance when produced by Mixed Blood Theatre in Cedar Riverside Minneapolis, Minnesota. For this musical to enter the Twin Cities at a time overlapping with the openings of multiple new queer Asian creative spaces is an indication, to say the least, of the presence and the strength of queer Asian communities here. Mixed Blood Theatre’s space in the firehouse, Keefer Court’s storefront, and AAOP’s Saint Paul offices each house layered and multigenerational histories of their spaces. The overlapping creativity and community building within and between these spaces is what this digital archive seeks to document. In doing so, this project aims to do more than challenge dominant narratives of Midwestern whiteness. I believe digital archives themselves create new spaces with the potential to interconnect, expand, and overrun the boundaries of queer and trans Asian existence.
