Support our Federation Members this Give OUT Day

Especially in 2017, we need to support the safety of our queer and trans and gender non-conforming Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (API) community. Learn how our federation members are supporting our communities with funds raised in this year’s Give OUT Day.

 


It’s critical it is to come together, fight isolation, and build systems that support our full humanity, so this spring, APIENC’s Give OUT Day focuses on supporting their summer leadership development work: internship, leadership exchange, and network of community mentorship. Every dollar supports the leadership development of trans, non-binary, and queer APIs.


API Equality-LA works within the Asian and Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ communities in order to promote racial and social justice. All funds raised will sustain their internship and leadership programs for the upcoming year. Their programs give youth from different backgrounds and identities hands-on training with community organizing and activism.


Nearly a year since the Orlando nightclub shooting, NQAPIA and the Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity (MASGD) continue to support, empower, and connect LGBTQ Muslims across the country.

 


MASGDMASGD aims to increase acceptance of gender and sexual diversity within Muslim communities and promotes a progressive understanding of Islam that is centered on inclusion, justice, and equality. They seek to challenge root causes of oppression, including misogyny and xenophobia. Your gift allows MASGD to continue creating opportunities for LGBTQ Muslims to be represented, find resources, and know they are not alone.


NQAPIA recognizes the importance of building family acceptance and cultivating supportive communities for LGBTQ Asians and Pacific Islanders. Our groundbreaking family acceptance workshops and multi-lingual visibility campaign have helped make heartwarming progress.

 


To lift our communities, NQAPIA is supporting efforts to plan the first-ever National LGBTQ Conference for Korean Americans. This landmark project will bring together LGBTQ people of Korean descent from around the country to help build a shared sense of identity and pride and to promote broader acceptance and visibility within the API community.


The San Gabriel Valley Asian Pacific Islander PFLAG is a loving community of compassionate and welcoming individuals that provide a safe space for parents, families, straight allies and LGBTQ persons of Asian, Pacific-Islander, East Asian, and South Asian descent. Funds raised will help continue their monthly support group meetings and community outreach programs.


Will you make a donation of $25 to one organization or even $5 to each organization?
With any amount, we all appreciate your support on Give OUT Day and every day.

Celebrating our Community

Dear friends,

This is a difficult time for many of us. It’s hard to find support with the deluge of despicable declarations that have been coming from the White House. But, we have to support each other. And, there are several champions in our community who have supported the queer API community and efforts to keep or community safe and fight for immigrants’ rights, racial justice, and LGBT equality.

NQAPIA is working hard to keep our community safe and secure. You can help by making a donation.

Glenn speaks at a podium

Later this month, NQAPIA will be hosting our annual Community Catalyst Awards Celebrations in New York City and Washington, DC. They are celebrations of our community, reunions with old friends, and time to inspire a new generation of leaders. Join us!

For me, they are more than just fundraising banquets. They showcase the people who inspire me and have worked hard to defend our community. Let me tell you about them and why they are so special to me.

Community Catalyst Awards Banquet in Washington, DC on March 11


Gautam RaghavanGautam Raghavan is a first-generation immigrant from India and served as President Barack Obama’s liaison to the LGBT community and the Asian American & Pacific Islander community. Before, he was Deputy White House Liaison for the U.S. Department of Defense and led efforts to undo the Pentagon’s anti-LGBT “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. He is now Vice President of Policy of the Gill Foundation where he drives federal and state efforts to ensure a level playing field for all LGBT Americans.


Miriam YeungMiriam Yeung was most recently the Executive Director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) leading the country’s advocacy on behalf of AAPI women and girls. Miriam has brought fierce intersectional analysis, practical policy advocacy, and a deep belief in powerbuilding from the base up. I recognize her as a leader in reproductive justice, immigrant rights, economic justice, and racial justice movements.


AQUA DCFor 20 years, Asian and Pacific Islander Queers United for Action (AQUA DC) has been promoting positive identity and advocating for the general welfare of the API GBTQ male-identified members of the of the Washington, DC metro area. I’ve know the “AQUA boys” for over 15 years and have always admired their advocacy, coalition building, education, networking, outreach, and support.


Where would our community be were it not for Gautam, Miriam, and AQUA?

OnginaOngina (born Ryan Ong Palao) is flying in from Los Angeles and is originally from the Philippines. She was part of the 1st Cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race and was best known for her sweetness, fashionable runway presentations, and coming out to the world as HIV+. She now hosts Logo’s series “HIV and Me” to tell the stories of those living with HIV. Ongina inspires me with her views drag as artistic expression and an outlet for a woman stuck in a gay man’s body to come out and let loose and have fun. I can so relate.


Ng FamilyThe Ng Family is one where each member of the family has done so much for the LGBT API community (pictured left to right: Jonas, Virginia, Maxwell, and John).

Father John Ng, was educated in Hong Kong and came to the U.S. in 1974 looking to better his life and provide an opportunity for the next generation. He has spoken on several panels being the proud father of a transgender son. He has been married to his wife Virginia for 43 years.

Mother Virginia Lou Ng, has been involved in the Asian American community for over 35 years and is best known for her work at OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates (formerly the Organization of Chinese Americans) and Charles B. Wang Community Health Center. Virginia served as New Jersey Chapter President and OCA National Vice President.

Son Maxwell Ng chairs the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition. Last summer, MTPC passed legislation to protect Trans people in public accommodations. Maxwell also serves on the Steering Committee for the Queer Asian Pacific-Islander Alliance (QAPA). Founded in 1979, QAPA, is the oldest Asian queer organization in the US.

Brother Jonas Ng is a Vice President at Nationwide Bank. He has excelled as a member of the Bank’s executive leadership team and before was a Managing Director for Discover Card. He is a staunch LGBT ally and has promoted Diversity and Inclusion is at several Fortune 200 financial institutions.


I love that we are honoring a drag queen and a family.

Fundraising

It’s up to the community to support the work of NQAPIA in cultivating a new generation of LGBT API leaders, building local capacity, fighting for immigrants’ rights, and promoting family acceptance. We cannot rely on foundations, corporations, and the rich. So, at each of the dinners, Anish Tailor from KhushDC and Patrick Lee from GAPIMNY will share their personal stories and why they are supporting NQAPIA and the Queer Asian movement. All support at any level helps.

I am so excited for each of these dinners and I hope you can join us. You can buy tickets to the New York and Washington, DC dinners.

If you cannot come, please consider supporting someone else to come so that they can be in community with us. NQAPIA believes that money should never be a barrier to participating. You can donate a ticket by purchasing a ticket for either or both dinners in New York and Washington, DC.

And at the very least, a donation of any amount will help continue the critical work of these amazing honorees. Donate at bit.ly/supportcca.

I hope you can join us and be in community with us either in-person or as a donor. We need your support now more than ever.

In community and solidarity:

Remembering Orlando for National Coming Out Day

Earlier this week was National Coming Out Day, and during the delay of this email, we took time to reflect on the months since the Orlando tragedy. To us, the Orlando tragedy underlines how important it is to be out of the closet and to support and celebrate individualism and diversity, especially for our kids and youth.

Whether during LGBT Pride Month, LGBT History/Herstory/Theirstory Month, or any month, let’s show unity and have the biggest LGBTQ parades and parties ever! We dedicate our celebrations to those we lost in Orlando and before, and we must show support for the Muslim communities that face backlash and prejudice—just as we have as a community.

Fawzia Mirza

“There are no words to describe the sadness I felt when I heard about the tragedy and loss of our LGBTQ, Latinx and human family in Orlando. But I know that since then, as a queer, Pakistani, Muslim woman, I will hug tighter, love louder and voice even louder.”
— Comedian Fawzia Mirza Hari Kondabalu

“Whatever they say about you, know that I love you.”
— Comedian/Writer Hari Kondabolu

Anita Lo

“In the face of the Orlando tragedy, we must continue to come together to show unity and to express solidarity with the Muslim communities that are facing elevated prejudice, just as we have as a group. Love indeed conquers hate, and our rainbow flag will always represent diversity.”
— Celebrity Chef Anita Lo

Resources

Not everyone feels safe in coming out, and we still hurt from the Orlando tragedy.

If you need resources in coming out to your API Parents, watch commercials of API parents who love their LGBTQ children created by the Asian Pride Project and read translated leaflets that answer basic questions about being LGBTQ and dispel common misperceptions.

View the resources we shared after the Orlando tragedy, including counseling and support options and statements by 28 organizations.

#WeAreOrlando

Regardless of where you are at in your coming out journey, we send you love and support for National Coming Out Day.

“Why I Give” by Marsha Aizumi

When I was an ashamed, sad, and fearful mother, I found PFLAG. It was a place where I could get support as a mother. I am so grateful for them. But what I didn’t find at PFLAG were individuals that looked like our family and people who understood our cultural uniqueness. I found that support at NQAPIA. And so I give to NQAPIA because I know so many have given before me, so I could find a place to belong. I give to NQAPIA because I have two sons and at one time I feared I would only have one. And I give to NQAPIA because I wake up each morning with hope for Aiden’s future, where I once feared that he would not find happiness and love.

Marsha holds a sign that reads "I [heart] my trans son"

I am hoping that you will find your reasons to give as well. It feels so good to know that my donations are going towards helping families stay connected with love, or helping those whose families have not embraced them fully to find a chosen family to support them. It feels good to know that I am helping immigrant families, stop racial profiling and speak out for our Muslim community who could be discriminated against like my family was and put into concentration camps during World War II. I believe in NQAPIA’s work and I have seen what a wonderful steward of our dollars NQAPIA is. The Board and staff of NQAPIA work tirelessly and unselfishly to support our API LGBTQ community, but they can’t do the amazing work they are doing without our support.

In honor of the 39 organizations that are part of the NQAPIA alliance and also doing incredible work, I am donating $390. If you are able, can you please donate, $3,900 or $390 or $39, or any donation that you are able to make will help further their work? Thank you so much for all your have done for my family and so many others.

We are strong, we are resilient, and we are love.

परिवार कभी पराया नहीं होता… प्‍यार कभी कम नहीं होता…

Hindi Leaflet

परिवार कभी पराया नहीं होता… प्‍यार कभी कम नहीं होता…

कई माता-पिताओं के बेटा/बेटी और परिवारों के ऐसे लाड़ले सदस्‍य होते हैं जो लेस्बियन(औरत से सैक्‍स करने वाली औरत), गे (आदमी से सैक्‍स करने वाला आदमी), बाईसेक्‍सुअल (दूसरे लिंग और समलिंगी दोनों से सैक्‍स करने वाला व्‍यक्ति) या ट्रांसजेंडर (लिंग बदलवाने वाला व्‍यक्ति) (एलजीबीटी) हैं। जब परिवार का कोई व्‍यक्ति कहता है कि वह ‘गे (आदमी से यौन-संबंध रखने वाली आदमी)’ है तो जाहिर-सी बात है कि परिवार के सदस्‍य उससे सवाल पूछेंगे। इन सवालों के जबाव देते हुए शुरुआती बातों के तौर पर, यहां कुछ महत्‍वपूर्ण तथ्‍य दिए गए हैं जिन्‍हें जानना ज़रूरी है:

  • लोग अपनी मर्जी से यह नहीं चुनते कि वे किसे प्‍यार करें या प्‍यार कैसे करें।

एलजीबीटी के तौर पर अपनी पहचान जाहिर करना, कोई अपनी मर्जी का मामला या एक्‍सीडेंट नहीं है। यह अमेरिका आने, बड़े शहरों में रहने, या एलजीबीटी दोस्‍त/सहेलियां बनाने की वजह से भी नहीं होता है। यूसीएलए स्‍कूल ऑफ लॉ के विलियम्‍स इंस्‍टीट्यूट के अनुसार, असल में, अमेरिका में एशियाई प्रशांत महाद्वीप की आबादी में से 3,25,000 या 2.8% लोगों की पहचान एलजीबीटी के तौर पर हुई है। ऐसी हालत में जबकि यह बात कोई भी पक्‍के तौर पर नहीं जानता कि सैक्‍स ओरियंटेशन (यौन रुझान) और लिंग पहचान किस तरह निश्चित होती है, ज़्यादातर एलजीबीटी लोग अपनी अलग स्थिति के बारे में कम उम्र में ही जान जाते हैं।

  • माता-पिता और उनके एलजीबीटी बच्‍चों ने कोई गलत काम नहीं किया

एलजीबीटी के माता-पिताओं में शुरू में कोई गलत काम करने और शर्मिंदगी का अहसास होता है लेकिन ऐसा नहीं है कि माता-पिता की वजह से उनके बच्‍चे एलजीबीटी बनते हैं। बच्‍चा जिस माहौल में बड़ा होता है उस माहौल से जुड़ी ऐसी कोई बात अभी तक मालूम नहीं हो सकी है जिसकी ”वजह” से कोई बच्‍चा एलजीबीटी बनता है। एलजीबीटी होने का सीधा मतलब है कि बच्‍चे की असली पहचान यही है। रिसर्च से पता चला है कि परिवार में इस पहचान को मानने से बच्‍चे की सेहत और भलाई को बढ़ावा मिलता है। परिवार के प्‍यार और मदद की बदौलत जोखिम पैदा करने वाले, खुद को नुकसान पहुंचाने वाले बर्ताव अपने-आप कम हो जाते हैं। इन बर्तावों में नशीले पदार्थ लेना, सेहत को नुकसान पहुंचाना और आत्‍महत्‍या के मामले शामिल हैं।

  • एलजीबीटी लोगों की जिंदगी खुशियों-भरी और कामयाब होती है

कई एलजीबीटी संतुष्‍ट और स्‍वस्‍थ जिंदगी जी सकते हैं। अमेरिका के साथ-साथ दुनिया बहुत तेज़ी से बदल रही है। कई राज्‍य और देश सेम सैक्‍स मैरिज (समान-लिंग वाले व्‍यक्ति से विवाह) को मान्‍यता दे रहे हैं। विलियम्‍स इंस्‍टीट्यूट ने पाया कि सेम सैक्‍स लोगों से संबंध रखने वाले 33,000 एएपीआई (एशियाई अमेरिकी व प्रशांत द्वीप वासी) लोगों में से 26% लोग बच्‍चों का पालन-पोषण कर रहे हैं। इसके अलावा, एलजीबीटी लोग सफल कॅरियर का आनंद भी उठाते हैं। कई व्‍यवसाय, कंपनियां, एजेंसियां और गैर-सरकारी संगठन अपने एलजीबीटी कर्मचारियों का खुलकर समर्थन करते हैं।

  • कई धर्म ”प्रगतिशील हो रहे हैं” और एलजीबीटी लोगों का पहले से ज़्यादा स्‍वागत हो रहा है

बहुत तेज़ी से, कई मत और धर्म एलजीबीटी लोगों का स्‍वागत करने के लिए बांहें फैलाकर आगे आ रहे हैं। एक खास समय के विचारों और संस्‍कृति दिखाने के लिए कुछ धर्मग्रंथों के हिस्‍से लिखे गए थे। कई संप्रदायों में अब यह माना जा रहा है कि एलजीबीटी लोगों को अपनाने का मतलब है बुनियादी धार्मिक और आध्‍यात्मिक मूल्‍यों पर जोर देना जैसे कि करुणा, प्रेम, दयालु ईश्‍वर और यह भरोसा बनाये रखना कि दूसरों के साथ हमें वैसा ही व्‍यवहार करना चाहिए जैसा हम अपने साथ होते हुए देखना चाहते हैं।

  • दुनिया को सभी के लिए एक बेहतर जगह बनाएं

कई राज्‍य और स्‍थानीय कानून एलजीबीटी लोगों की रक्षा करते हैं। इसके बावजूद, एलजीबीटी लोगों के साथ भेदभाव अभी भी जारी है। हमारी जिम्‍मेदारी है कि एक ऐसी दुनिया बनाई जाए जो भेदभाव से मुक्‍त हो, सुरक्षित हो और एक-दूसरे के लिए सम्‍मान से भरी हो चाहे किसी व्‍यक्ति की नस्‍ल, जातीयता, धर्म, प्राकृतिक मूल स्‍थान, अप्रवासी-स्थिति, यौन रुझान या लिंग पहचान कुछ भी हो।

  • स्‍वयं को और अन्‍य लोगों को शिक्षित करें।

आपकी मदद के लिए बहुत सारी जानकारी और संस्‍थाएं मौजूद हैं। पीएफ़एलएजी (ऐसे माता-पिता, परिवार और दोस्‍त जो अपने एलजीबीटी प्रियजनों की मदद करते हैं), नेशनल क्‍वीयर एशियन पैसिफिक आइलेंडर एलायंस (एनक्‍यूएपीआईए) और एशियन प्राइड प्रोजेक्‍ट जैसे समूह आप और आपके परिवार की मदद करने वाले समूह हैं। उनसे इन साइटों पर संपर्क करें  www.pflag.org, www.nqapia.org, www.asianprideproject.org.
