Champions of Change
APP aspires to foster greater visibility, pride, acceptance, unity, and harmony for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Asians & Pacific Islander (API) people in our families, cultural communities and beyond, no matter where we are. We believe in the power of sharing, connecting, and relating to give API families and communities the support they need when struggling with the challenges of our sexual and gender identities in the API cultural context. Asian Pride Project is led by a small group of dedicated and passionate leaders of New York City's Asian American LGBT organizations, including Q-Wave -- an Asian and Pacific Islander group for those who identify as lesbian, female bisexual, or transgendered, GAPIMINY -- the Gay Asian and Pacific Islander Men of New York, and SALGA-NYC -- the South Asian Lesbian and Gay Association of New York City.
