API Equality – LA

API Equality – LA

API Equality-LA’s mission is to build power in the Asian and Pacific Islander community to achieve LGBTQ equality and racial and social justice. We envision an inclusive, equitable, and just society where all API LGBTQ people can thrive.

API Equality-LA (Asians and Pacific Islanders for LGBTQ Equality – Los Angeles) began in Southern California in 2005 in response to anti-gay rallies organized by ultraconservative Chinese churches in California. API Equality-LA successfully organized the local community around marriage equality and built coalitions and relationships with other queer, trans, and API organizations throughout the campaign.
