In May we celebrate Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander Month, and at LEAGUE we love to shine a light on the LGBTQ+ folks in that community.
The good folks at GLAD.org have curated a celebration of unique voices to explore the diverse identities and narratives of LGBTQ+ people of Asian and Pacific Island descent, and to highlight their remarkable journeys during this month of recognition and appreciation.
In addition we’re highlighting The PRISM Foundation, an organization dedicated to LGBTQIA+ people in the AAPI community that also provides grants to people and organizations in this community to empower their journeys. The current student grant application period is open now, so please share if you have a young LGBTQ+ AAPI person in your circle.
Happy AAPI month!
