May marks the start of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) — a time for honoring and celebrating all of the contributions and achievements that generations of the Asian and Pacific American (APA) communities have made in enriching America’s history.
Asian and Pacific American stories have long been underrepresented in Hollywood and traditional media; However, that narrative is shifting here on Clubhouse. Since we launched in 2020, we have seen people from all over the world join the platform to talk about almost everything and anything! There’s a club for nearly every community, and we are witnessing APA leaders coming together on Clubhouse to make their voices heard.
The APA community continues to bring so much life to the hallways. With topics ranging from food and music to social issues and community representation, our APA users are trailblazing a space for people to listen and learn from one another.
Get ready to immerse yourself in the richness and diversity of APA cultures by exploring these 10 clubs trailblazing the social audio space.
