I grew up in Hong Kong and now live in Toronto, Canada. As with most migrant youth, I struggle with identity and finding home. And as with almost everyone, I struggle with alienation in this profoundly isolating space created by capitalism, colonialism, sexism.. etc.. But thankfully, I don't struggle alone. :)
This is my blog. I post mostly photography; political analysis from Canada, Hong Kong, China and elsewhere, on class struggle, racism, mental health, and oppression; random links; and cute pictures of dogs.
So, why Yellow Sweaty Gorilla?
It's actually a nickname given to me by my sister when I was young. My Chinese (Cantonese) name is 黃瀚陞: 黃Wong4 (Yellow) 瀚 Hon6 (Vastness) 陞 Sing1 (Rising). Yellow Sweaty Gorilla 黃汗猩 is a homonym for my name: 黃 Wong4 (Yellow) 汗 Hon6 (Sweaty) 猩 Sing1 (Gorilla). ...And, Gorilla is an English homonym for Guerilla .. kinda .. so doubly cool.
