Like the moon, as first and second gen asians,
we rise in the east and set in the west;
we shine light on the world and on those around us;

This is moonrise.

Our Story

Formerly THE ABC ISSUE, an online journal of stories, features and interviews of Asians Between Cultures, we were a platform where first and second generation Asians could share their experiences navigating the cultural crossroads between east and west.

We realised that as humans, we crave intimacy, relationship and connection and this was something we found could only be achieved when people gathered together. And so, Moonrise started.

Moonrise is committed to providing first and second generation Asians space to laugh, be vulnerable and unpack questions living between the east and west. We are passionate about elevating each other up, making a name for each other and not for ourselves.
