Presented by the A/P/A Institute at NYU, GAPIMNY, and NYU Tamiment Library & Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives.
Since 1990, the Gay Asian Pacific Islander Men of New York (GAPIMNY) has worked to empower gay, bisexual, queer, and questioning Asian and Pacific Islander men and transgender folks through a range of social, educational, peer-support, cultural, and political activities. On the occasion of the organization’s 25th birthday, GAPIMNY’s records, which include video footage, flyers, and more documenting queer A/P/A history in New York, have been donated to the NYU Tamiment Library & Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives, where they will be preserved and made accessible to community members, researchers, and students.
Current and former GAPMINY co-chairs offer reflections on the organization’s 25-year history and visions for the future. Tim Johnson (Head, Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives) and Tim Naftali (NYU Wagner) offer welcome remarks, and an exhibition chronicling the organization’s history, curated by A/P/A Graduate Archives Scholar Paul Tran, will be on display.
Cosponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality, NYU Archives and Public History Program, and NYU LGBTQ Student Center.
