API Pride is the newest addition to LGBTQ Pride celebrations in the Nation’s Capital. API Pride is a free community event that showcases the diverse and vibrant Queer API community of the Washington metropolitan area. It builds on a tradition of programming by local API LGBTQ organizations such as Pride & Heritage, celebrating both May as Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month and June as LGBTQ Pride Month.
Discussion: A conversation-style panel will discuss LGBTQ API populations in the District and the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The event takes place on May 17th which is also the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and next to May 18th, Act to Change’s Day Against Bullying and Hate, and panelists will discuss the impact of violence and harassment in our communities.
