April GM: It Takes a Community! 4/17 – 7pm

April 9, 2009

Last year, Q-Wave created the Queer & Asian health series to pursue greater holistic care of ourselves and each other. “It Takes a Community!” is our grand finale of this series which focuses on building friendships & relationships with our communities.

*  Have you ever wondered: can one person really make a difference? Can I really make a difference?
*  What are some NYC queer Asian communities that you can be a part of?
*  Do you wonder what are queer Asians doing beyond NYC, even beyond America?
*  Do you have some extra clothes, food or toiletries that you want to donate? Bring it to this meeting and Q-Wave will donate it to the queer and trans homeless youth shelter, Sylvia’s Place.

Come join us at our April 17th general meeting (GM) and meet lots of cool queer Asians, who are working to provide a safe and supportive community for us all. You’ll see the wonderful work out there and have plenty of opportunities to see how you can make a big difference.
