“Diversity isn’t a trend; it’s a constant battle to change an existing culture that shuts us out.”
Alyssa Wong

“I would give you only the best things. The kindness you deserved, the body you wanted, a way out that didn’t end with the horizon line ripped open, possibilities pouring out like loose stuffing, my world shrieking to a halt. I would have fixed everything.”
Alyssa Wong, A Fist of Permutations in Lightning and Wildflowers

“All the things that my friends expected me to say—the city’s great, it’s exciting, I’m so lucky to live here, I love it—flashed through my head. So did the things I’d never told anyone, that I couldn’t tell anyone, because they wouldn’t want to hear it. How the loneliness was crippling; how I’d been fired from three part-time jobs by now; how every day, on my way to class, I walked past the same madman in the tunnel moaning for Jesus, a mess of languages spilling from his bloody lips, past a banner ad that read: GET AWAY WITHOUT LEAVING NEW YORK.

“It’s different,” I’d said at last. I don’t know who I am without you, I didn’t say.

“I understand,” Melanie had replied. I could tell that she did.”
Alyssa Wong, A Fist of Permutations in Lightning and Wildflowers
