Thanks to #GivingTuesday, 52 people donated online for a total of $5,055! Thank you so much for your generous support. This means that we are more than halfway to our end-of-year goal!

We're halfway to our end-of-year fundraising goal!
If you haven’t donated, will you please support our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ) Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community for 2017?

After the November election, it’s so important that we continue to support each other and ramp up the work we do for our community. Here is what your donation will support:


Attorney Referral Network

With a variety of precautions to take before and after the inauguration, we are growing our attorney referral network. If you need help now, find an attorney here. If you’d like to volunteer to help, we are still accepting attorneys.

Racial Justice Convening

We will host a convening of racial justice activists, tentatively in Washington, DC in May. We are excited to plan more with our federation members to have another provocative action like#15YearsLater.

Regional Summits

Four Regional Summits will provide growth, support, and leadership opportunities relevant to your area, and we bridge these experiences with our national work.

  • South will be in Houston, TX in April
  • West Coast will be in Fresno, CA in July
  • Midwest will be in Chicago, IL in August
  • East Coast will be in Boston, MA in October

We need your help to support each other with love and resources, to respond to hateful rhetoric, and to fight hard for our LGBTQ AAPI community.

Will you help us raise $10,000?

All donations to NQAPIA are tax-deductible!

Thank you for your support of the LGBTQ AAPI community. We can’t do this without you.

Give OUT Day is Next Tuesday, August 2nd!

Give OUT Day 8.2.2016

On August 2, people around the country will come together to raise critically needed funds for LGBTQ communities. Give OUT Day is a national day of giving for the LGBTQ community—a 24-hour online fundraising event. These funds translate directly into services, advocacy, and programs that help tens of thousands of LGBTQ people.

Now more than ever, the importance of NQAPIA’s work is crystal clear. Our community was rocked by the tragedy in Orlando, which was motivated by hate toward LGBTQ people. When reports emerged that the shooter, an Afghani-American, may have been gay himself, we could not help thinking about how desperately he and his family may have needed to know there is a whole community of people with similar backgrounds who love and accept LGBTQ people. It brought home how critical our work really is.

Family is Still Family Hindi PSAAsian Pride Project
This summer, our family acceptance public service announcements reached over 200 million people. These PSAs, created by the Asian Pride Project, aired in several languages in mainstream, LGBTQ, and ethnic media. This groundbreaking campaign is just getting started, and we hope to expand our reach to more and more people who need to hear the message that LGBTQ children in our communities are loved.

On August 2, we hope you will consider investing in Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander LGBTQ people and our families. We hope you will Give OUT and help us continue to send our message of love to people who need to hear it.
