Never will I ever forget these moments of South Asian representation in 2020 • Kulfi Beauty

Dramatic narrator voice: ‘Previously on South Asian representation this year…’

As we approach the finish line of this messy year, I’ve been reflecting on the various moments of South Asian representation that had us gasping, cringing, celebrating, and binge-watching from the comfort of our couches. This year, we’ve seen actual steps toward South Asian representation in western media—and no, not just side characters on sitcoms, but full casts of Desi actors on Netflix. It’s interesting to have seen a variety of reactions to these moments, including the many memes on Subtle Curry Traits and insightful think pieces written by South Asian creatives.  

So, here it is: a roundup of 7 moments of South Asian representation that stood out to me (among many!), that I’m excited to unpack with you.
