Creating Change

Catch us at Creating Change

NQAPIA at the Creating Change Conference


Every three years, we come together to network, organize, agitate, educate, and build at the nation’s largest gathering of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (API) communities. This summer, we’re excited to be in San Francisco from July 26-29, 2018.
