About Silk Club

Silk Club is an organization for Austin-based self-identified Asian American women, non-binary, and genderqueer folks to collaborate on projects that celebrate our experience. It is a space committed to validating and empowering intersectional identities, building creative opportunities, and fostering connections between different Asian communities. Since its inception in January 2018, Silk Club has hosted and participated in a number of community events and programs in addition to creating and developing the QUIET! zine. 

QUIET! is a bi-annual zine that features photography, writing, art, design, and other creative works about Asian and Asian American experience. As Asian women, non-binary, and genderqueer folks, our stereotypically introverted demeanor has been used a means of belittlement and ridicule. In an attempt to both unlearn and embrace this given identity, our collaborators reflect on many aspects of Asian and Asian American life. Within a social justice and feminist framework, our goal for the QUIET! zine is to highlight and empower Asian creatives, create a space for marginalized voices, and provide a creative outlet for members of the community.
