Towards a Differential Ethics of Belonging in a Transnational Context: Navigating the Hong Kong Movement in the US in 2020 and 2021
In this autoethnography, I reflect on my experience navigating the tension among different groups of local and diasporic Hongkongers as we experienced three key events: the Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020, the US presidential election, and the rise of anti-Chinese and anti-Asian sentiments in the US. Through concepts from feminist and queer theories, such as differential belonging, disidentification, and transformative justice, I highlight moments of transnational coalition and barriers that render cross-national and cross-cultural solidarities difficult.
