2023 AAAS Award Winner

We are thrilled that the Association for Asian American Studies has awarded Eric C. Wat an Outstanding Achievement in History for Love Your Asian Body: AIDS Activism in Los Angeles.

In this community memoir, Wats connects the deeply personal with the uncompromisingly political by telling the stories of more than thirty Asian American AIDS activists. For many, the AIDS epidemic sparked the beginning of their continued work to build multiracial coalitions and confront broader systemic inequities. Detailing the intertwined realities of race and sexuality in AIDS activism, Love Your Asian Body offers a vital portrait of a movement founded on joy.

A brilliant, gorgeous, and nuanced rendering of queer Asian American activism in the 1980s and 1990s. This is the book I have been waiting for all my life.

—Anthony Christian Ocampo, author of The Latinos of Asia: How Filipino Americans Break the Rules of Race

This book is an inspiring work that deserves to be read as it is an integral piece towards understanding the queer Asian American struggle for sexual liberation and health equity.
