Since the release of its first magazine in 2014, Banana magazine has been the voice for contemporary Asian culture. It deals with subject matters that are concerned with how Asians are perceived in the West and try to find ways to re-address these misconceptions. In the previous Issue 003, the publication focused mainly on Asian American identity.

Now, co-founders Kathleen Tso and Vicki Ho dive into deeper issues by exploring themes that are not so often talked about.

In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage month, Banana has released Issue 004 which is the latest edition of its annual print publication. The current magazine contains 168 pages and is filled with evocative content that centers around the triumphs and trials of being an Asian in the West.

Touching on different topics such as gender identity in the Asian community and creating a whimsical Wong Kar Wai-inspired photoshoot showcasing the best spots to eat Asian fried chicken, the issue highlights the significance of what it truly means to be Asian today.

The magazine also features stories from Asian celebrities including professional stuntwoman Verena Mei (known for her work in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift) who gives her take on Asian femininity.
