Streaming platform TaiwanPlus Launches #BeSeenWeek to Bring Visibility to Asian Americans and Other Underrepresented Communities

TAIPEI, Oct. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 1, Taiwanese media platform TaiwanPlus launched a weeklong social media campaign aimed at bringing visibility to Asian Americans. Throughout #BeSeenWeek, TaiwanPlus will share personal stories from prominent Asian American creators and encourage other people to tell their stories as well, highlighting the fact that every story is valuable and deserves to Be Seen. By amplifying these under-recognized perspectives, #BeSeenWeek will create a space for Asian Americans, allies, and others to build community through storytelling. 

It's a fitting message for TaiwanPlus, an English-language news and entertainment streaming platform that celebrates the uniqueness of Taiwan while also deepening viewers' understanding of Asia at large. "Our mission at TaiwanPlus is to tell stories that are often overlooked in the mainstream media, particularly stories from Asia and about Taiwanese culture and communites. Those perspectives are frequently overshadowed by news and narratives about our larger neighbors," says TaiwanPlus Acting CEO Michael Yu. "That mission resonates with the goals of the Be Seen campaign, which is an opportunity to support underserved voices in America."

Throughout the week, influential Asian Americans will share personal stories, sponsored and amplified by TaiwanPlus, about their lives, careers, and identity. Viewers can participate and get their stories amplified by creating content with the #BeSeenWeek hashtag. Key #BeSeenWeek stories will include: 

The campaign will run from October 1 through October 7 and can be followed via the website http://beseen.taiwanplus.com/campaign/, via the hashtag #BeSeenWeek, on Instagram @taiwanplus.
