Asian Americans are the fastest growing minority group in the nation, largely due to immigration. The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) — a federation of LGBT Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) organizations — has advocated for the rights of LGBT immigrants and aims to lift the voices of those who have often been overlooked.
These are our stories. We hope they illustrate the great need for immigration reform and the various ways in which immigration laws directly impact the everyday lives of LGBT people.
