Draw the Circle

Deen

[Message from Deen]
“Draw the Circle” is the hilarious and moving story of how a conservative Muslim family deals with a child who defies their most basic expectations of what it means to have a daughter – and one woman’s commitment to unconditional love. Told entirely from the point of view of family and friends, yet performed by Deen himself, the show compassionately brings to life the often-ignored struggle experienced by a transgender individual’s family.

Photography Project

[Message from Ka-Man Tse]
I am a NY based artist and educator working on a photography project making portraits in the LGBTQ API community.  I am looking to make portraits of individuals, couples, and groups.

About myself:  I am Chinese-American lesbian and teach undergraduate photography.   Most recently  I participated in a show organized by the Asian Pride Project, called Our Portraits Our Families, a group photography exhibition featuring portraits and narratives of API LGBTQ individuals and their families.

API Bi Awareness Workshop: Volunteer Opportunity

With a bisexual movement growing under the LGBTQ umbrella and bisexual visibility gaining in popular awareness, it’s time for us to talk about what bisexuality means in the Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander (ASAPI) American community!

Q-WAVE and SALGA are developing a workshop.  If you are bi or a bi ally and would like to help guide the discussions in this workshop, please email estephanie.hsu@gmail.com for more info.  They are aiming to have the workshop in the coming weekends.

All Students Count Act of 2014

Frequently, Asian Americans students are presented as students from whom the education system can have high expectations. GAPIMNY leadership understands this as an injustice because we understand Asian American experiences are vastly different. It is this model minority narrative that silences the LGBT Asian American experience, which includes bullying. Also the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice has been generating studies since 2004 that Vietnamese, Laotian, Cambodian, and Hmong American adults have the lowest education attainment rate among Asian Americans. We stand in support of The All Students Count bill, that would require state report cards to disaggregate in a similar manner. The Southeast Asian Resource Center has provided a fact sheet here.
