Long Tran is an M.A. student with a background in filmmaking that confronts xenophobia, racism, sexism, and transphobia. His films were screened, covered, and honored by the Seattle International Film Festival, Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival, Wong Fu Productions, NBC News Asian America, Adobe, and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and Northwest Asian Weekly. As the son of a Việt Nam War immigrant and refugee, his disconnection with Vietnamese culture catalyzed his social-justice-oriented work in academia and Hollywood, which inspired him to center his scholarly interests around Việt Nam War-era national cinema and related media. His recent essay “Queer History Through a Hollywood Lens” was recently accepted for publication in the Augsburg Honors Review. In addition to his many scholarly and artistic accolades, he enters graduate studies as the founder of the Vietnamese Student Association at UW Tacoma, former president of the Film Club, and a Husky 100. He is a boba connoisseur and is obsessed with black and green milk tea. His favorite food is phở and bún bò Huế.
