Community Gathering: The Importance of South Florida's LGBTQ Community

  • Center for Social Change (Floor 5 Conference Room) 2103 Coral Way Miami, FL, 33145 United States (map)

This event will be a conversation about the importance of community and shared experiences as LGBTQ Asian people in South Florida. We will be connecting over light snacks and good company!

Many people question why it is important at all to have an LGBTQ Asian community, especially in South Florida. As queer Asian people, many of us live our lives as Asian people completely separate from our lives as people under the LBGTQ umbrella. Our network of queer friends is hardly ever Asian. Our network of Asian friends is hardly ever queer.

We live at the intersection of these identities, and in order to feel more whole, we need to learn to integrate those separate identities together. We cannot ignore them, because they affect our experiences in life in ways that are very unique to our community.

Hope to see you there!
