“API Parents Who Love their LGBT Kids” 

Join us for a workshop to hear Asian, South Asian, and Southeast Asian parents share their experiences of confusion, fear, love, acceptance, and celebration of their LGBTQ children.  

We especially welcome parents of LGBT kids who would like to talk with other parents who understand the unique cultural issues in our communities, as well as LGBT people who want to come out to their parents, or people who are struggling with families and want to understand different ways to bring families together.  If you are already out to your parents, caregivers or other family members, bring them along!

These works are part of a series of ten (10) family acceptance workshops across the country coordinated by parents and the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (May) and LGBT Pride Month (June).

Also, in the month of June, look out for pubic service announcement (PSA) videos of parents of LGBT kids on many Asian ethnic television station and international channels.  Check local listings for air times.http://www.nqapia.org/wpp/api-parents-who-love-their-lgbt-kids-multilingual-psa-campaign/
