PFLAG National partner NQAPIA (The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance), a federation of LGBTQ Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander organizations, has developed a series of multilingual public service announcements (PSAs).
An accompanying one-page, double-sided leaflet entitled, “Family Is Still Family, Love Is Still Love” addresses fundamental questions about sexual orientation and identity. The leaflet dispels common misconceptions and is available in 19 Asian languages and scripts--the greatest number of translations of a single LGBT document. NQAPIA collaborated with the Asian Pride Project--an organization that aspires to foster greater visibility, pride, acceptance, unity, and harmony for all LGBT Asians & Pacific Islander (API) people--and parents to produce culturally appropriate materials in response to an absence of role models and resources for Asian communities.
NQAPIA is hopeful that the videos and written materials will be helpful resources for young people (and really anyone) who aims to come out to their parents.
We are so happy to help our friends at NQAPIA get the word out about this important series, which will be so helpful to so many people.
