API Women and Non-Binary Achievements Honored at CAPE’s Inaugural Radiance Fundraiser

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment (CAPE) hosted RADIANCE, a first-of-its-kind celebratory fundraiser that honored API women and non-binary achievements in entertainment. 

Actresses Ming-Na Wen and Tati Gabrielle, along with “Everything Everywhere All at Once” costume designer Shirley Kurata and “Partner Track” showrunner Georgia Lee, were among some of the night’s honorees. Hosted by Merle Dandridge from “The Last of Us,” other honored individuals included Rebecca Sun, the senior editor for The Hollywood Reporter, and Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, for her performance in A24’s “After Yang.”

“Our work is just beginning,” said Visionary Award recipient Georgia Lee. “The tide is shifting in the right way,” she added, referring to how Hollywood is becoming much more aware and conscious about the importance of gender diversity in the entertainment industry.
