Description
An oral history of Mr. Alexander Tran who was born on March 8, 1984, in Orange, California. His family immigrated to America in 1975 through connections with the U.S. Embassy. His parents were first located in Oklahoma before they decided to relocate in Southern California. Throughout his K-12 education, Alexander hopped around from different schools that had primarily dominant Vietnamese populations among the students. In 2002, he began his studies as an art major at UC Irvine and later dropped out of school in 2005. In 2008, Alexander became apart of an organization called the Viet Rainbow of Orange County, where he found a supportive group of people who focus on LGBTQ issues within the Vietnamese community. Currently, he resides in Irvine, California with his parents and attends Santa Ana College. He also works as a pharmacy tech at Kaiser Permanente and, in his free time, he does freelance makeup and volunteers with the VROC organization.
