For those of you at or around the University of Florida, make sure you mark our calendars for Asian Kaleidoscope Month, October 12 to November 11. It's a month-long celebration dedicated to education and awareness of the histories, cultures, and contributions of Asians and Asian Americans.

This year's theme, AKM 2011: Defining Your Story, aims to highlight the unique stories of individuals in the Asian and Asian American community, and will include special guest speakers, screenings, workshops, performances and other social events.

Asian Kaleidoscope Month kicks off with an Opening Ceremony featuring actor Rex Lee from Entourage. It's happening Wednesday, October 12 at the Phillips Center. Here are some more details:

Asian Kaleidoscope Month and ACCENT Speaker's Bureau are proud to present Rex Lee, best known for his role on HBO's original hit series Entourage. Lee will speak on a wide range of topics ranging from his day to day interactions as an actor, to his role on Entourage. Additionally Lee will discuss the adversity he faces as an openly gay actor raised in a Korean family.
It looks like they've put together a packed schedule of really programming, so don't miss out. I should add that I will be joining in on the festivities and speaking at a workshop, Asian Americans in the Media: Real Life vs. Reel Life on October 27. Hope to see you there.
