A guide to Subtle Asian Traits spinoffs
With its meteoric rise, Subtle Asian Traits has easily become the one of largest online Asian communities in the world, amassing 1.7 million members since its creation in September 2018. Subtle Asian Traits’ humble beginnings as a Facebook group founded by nine high school seniors in Australia to serve as a place to celebrate the shared experiences of first- and second-generation Asian immigrants. Since then, it has blossomed into a colorful community of sharing Asian memes and a platform for discussing Asian and Asian diaspora issues. The group’s success has inspired several spinoff groups, catering both to Asian ethnic groups and an Asian-only space for certain interests. The following list of 16 Subtle Asian groups is definitely only a small portion of the plethora of spinoffs, so whether you’re looking for a space to share your love of dancing or Subtle Asian Traits just isn’t putting out enough Cantonese memes for you, there’s sure to be a Subtle Asian-inspired group for you.
