025 // Anne Gu // Co-Founder - Asian Subtle Traits // Creating a Not-So-Subtle Global Community

Meet Anne Gu, a co-founder of the global cultural movement Asian Subtle Traits, a Facebook group with more than 1.7 million members and responsible for inspiring countless digital communities for Asians globally to connect and build community together. Li

Meet Anne Gu!

We celebrate Anne and her friends' initiative in starting Subtle Asian Traits and building a global movement that has changed the lives of millions and have inspired countless Asian communities globally.

We support her and fellow community builders to create spaces for likeminded people to connect, laugh, and create together.

We are inspired by the positive impact that can be initiated by a few people who decided to create something to bond over.


Anne Gu is one of the co-founders of Subtle Asian Traits, a Facebook group founded in September of 2018 by friends who attended Chinese School together in Melbourne, Australia. Since then, it has grown into a global community of more than 1.7 people and has inspired many other "subtle Asian" groups to create community for various topics and cultures. Anne is currently a student at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
