Desi, Queer and Undocumented in America

South Asian Americans make up one-sixth of the undocumented population in the United States according to South Asian Diaspora blog. DREAM act activist, Bupendra Ram, shares his story of fleeing Fiji for the U.S. and the challenges of growing up undocumented and queer. “I am undocumented, queer and South Asian,” he says. “I cannot tell my undocumented story without telling my queer story. It’s part of the work of being whole.”
