Dear Fierce Ones, 

Thank you so much for your love and support throughout the years as I've toured the country with my queer and trans themed Asian American art. 

As fall rolls around, I need to raise some funds for a car accident and root canal so I can get back on the road bringing my art to your communities. Half of this campaign goes to a $1000 deductible and a $1500 root canal so I can drive and fix my mouth to perform. 

The other half funds a NEW ALBUM! I'm raising money to fund the production of a solo studio album of new work so I can have it with me as I travel. The album will include stories from home, love poems, and drrrty sex (you know how my shows go.) I'm raising $3500 which covers travel for recording ($500), artist fees ($1500), production costs ($1000), and to cover the fee taken by Amazon and kickstarter ($500)

Please consider donating so that I can keep doing what I love to do and adding to the landscape of queer and trans Asian American art. 

Aloha, 
Kit
