description
Maij Vu Mai describes themself as a community member, a healer, a minister, a Maij, a person of many interests and passions, and "someone who's looking to get free in this world by any means necessary." Though raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, they currently reside in Durham, North Carolina, working as the Assistant Director of Programming at the Center for Multicultural Affairs at Duke University. In addition to this, they are the Asian American and Pacific Islander roundtable coordinator for the Center for LGBTQ and Religious Studies at the Pacific School of Religion. The interview centers Mai's experiences as a former Wake Forest student of seven years, their role as the LGBTQ Center's graduate assistant from 2018 to 2020, and their observations of queer BIPOC community-making on Wake's campus. In the interview, Mai offers insightful reflections of Wake's queer BIPOC communities and how academic institutions can serve marginalized communities.
