    What we're about


    APIQWTC (pronounced "API-cutesy") provides opportunities for Asian & Pacific Islander queer women and transgender people to socialize, network, build community, engage in inter-generational organizing, and increase community visibility.


    APIQWTC is a fun, welcoming, multi-generational group of Asian & Pacific islander queer women and transgender people in the Bay Area, who are building community together. We are the legacy of queer A&PI activism, stemming from earlier-founded organizations going back to 1987. We are a wholly volunteer-based organization.


    • APIQWTC hosts, and is involved in, a range of activities year-round:
    Website and listserv, which allows members to keep in touch about issues and events pertaining to the APIQWTC community

    • Pride Parade and booth

    • API Pride Council

    • Annual Spring Banquet, our main event and fundraiser

    • Social Events: annual BBQ, monthly meetups, basketball, doggy play dates, games and movie nights, annual Tahoe trip, wine tasting, etc.

    • Co-sponsorship: workshops (e.g. QACON at UC Berkeley), film and cultural events, and other community efforts

    • Scholarships, awarded annually at the Banquet

    • Annual Phoenix Award to a member of our community, based on nominations and awarded at the Banquet

    • Support of other colleague organizations
