ABOUT QTAPI WEEK
QTAPI Week is a nationally recognized week when organizers demonstrate the strength and resilience of the Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle-Eastern, Desi American (APIMEDA) community in the face of continued violence as well as pride in identity as part of the LGBTQ community. QTAPI Week is held annually on the last week of May to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and/or the first week of Pride Month in order to uplift and honor the queer and trans AAPI community.
The San Diego Queer APIMEDA Coalition (QAPIMEDA) was formed in 2019 to create a safe and welcoming space designed to build capacity and leaders within the LGBTQ+ APIMEDA community, promote connectivity, combat stereotypes and racism, and mobilize civic and economic power.
American Sign Language interpretation services can be arranged for this event with at least one week of advance notice. For any other accommodation needs, please email email@example.com one week before the event.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any additional questions.
San Diego Queer APIMEDA's purpose is to create a safe and welcoming space designed to foster meaningful discussions about the intersection of individuals who identify as Desi, Middle-Eastern, Pacific Islander, Asian, and LGBTQ+.
