Thuc founded both #TheBitchList and #StartWith8Hollywood

Sundance Film Festival has Thuc back for #Sundance2021

  • Please note that #StartWith8Hollywood was created by Thuc Doan Nguyen (*Very strongly not affiliated with the trademarked “#StartWith8”, WOCU/JTC-List or its representatives or any monetization of inclusion/mentoring schemes).
  • #StartWith8Hollywood is an idea to get people in Hollywood to talk with 8 new Women of Color friends to facilitate discussions across humanity.
  • #StartWith8HollywoodNorth is a sister initiative by Murry Peeters for the Canadian entertainment industry.
  • The original “Start With 8” and that hashtag were from the tech industry- a project of Alpha Edison and friends.
