LGBT Immigrants’ Rights

In collaboration with local LGBT AAPI groups, we are spearheading an educational and advocacy campaign on immigrants’ rights that includes local actions, community forums, media hits featuring LGBT AAPI immigrants and a national postcard campaign.


Multilingual Visibility Campaign

NQAPIA aims to improve the visibility of LGBTs in the mainstream AAPI community and of AAPIs in the broader LGBT community. This multilingual education campaign includes outreach to the Asian ethnic media and educational pieces translated into several Asian languages.


Capacity Building Resources, Workshops, and Trainings

This includes a descriptive directory of all of the nation’s LGBT AAPI groups, organizational tool kit with best practices and model documents, fiscal sponsorship, and special trainings/workshops.


A Voice in Current Issues

NQAPIA raises the LGBT AAPI voice in current issues and we promote LGBT AAPI engagement. NQAPIA is the only LGBT member of the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans, the coalition of national AAPI advocacy organizations. And we add a racial justice lens to current LGBT issues.
