MexiStani: Growing Up Mexican & Pakistani in America

In "MexiStani," Sofie Khan explores her Mexican & Pakistani identity among her Catholic and Muslim family members, TSA agents and gas station cashiers.
That's a favorite phrase of comic Sofie Khan that she uses when meeting strangers from around the world. Khan grew up with a Mexican Catholic mother and a Pakistani Muslim father in a predominantly Black and Puerto Rican neighborhood in Chicago. As such, issues with identity played a large role in her formative years.
Sofie Khan journeys through storybits about everything from Trader Joe's tamales to her Mexican-Pakistani identity triumphs. And how does Hip Hop and the LGBT community play a role up in this mix? Expect things to get thought-provoking, emotional and hysterical!
