What we're about

Philadelphia Asian and Queer - PAQ

We are a support and social group that provides queer Asians and Pacific Islanders in Philadelphia with a comforting environment to freely discuss and be comfortable with their sexual identity and race. Our discussion forum serves as a safe space, where individuals can freely converse about issues relevant to being LGBTQIA and Asian and help support each other in their common lived experiences. PAQ’s social events provide members with the opportunity to meet others of similar backgrounds and interests while strengthening the voices of the queer Asian and Pacific Islander community.

Monthly Support Group

Our monthly support group takes place at William Way Center every 3rd Sunday from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm! In an effort to create a safer space for our community, this group is only open to API & AAPI (Asian and Pacific Islanders/Asian American) individuals who are LGBTQ-identified or LGBTQ-friendly.

The conversation of the group is organic with different subjects based on the flow. You will get a chance to meet people and have a great conversation around shared experiences. You can also use the space to share your unique experience with our brothers, sisters, and siblings! Don't know what to talk about? Don't worry, we got you! We also prepare a suggesting topic each month to keep the conversation going, so just bring yourself and have a good time with us!
