Anna May Wong's Certificate of Identity, August 18, 1924, National Archives at San Francisco.

She was born Wong Liu Tsong in 1905 in Los Angeles to a Cantonese-American family that had lived in America since at least 1855. However, being an American didn’t matter in a time when people of Chinese descent were being heavily legislated against. Beginning in 1909, any people of Chinese descent entering or residing in the US, regardless of the country of their birth, had to carry a Certificate of Identity with them at all times. Even at the peak of her fame, Wong still had to carry papers like the one above to prove she was allowed to be here.

Gorgeous, terrifying, illegal hike.  Those are the best kind.


I’ve been thinking about making lots of life changes and the future and shit and it’s really exciting and scary and it’s making me get kinda tear-y but I can’t really put my finger on the emotion I’m feeling but I know that I really want to change my life for the better and that makes me feel good (?).




The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…


Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
