9/18 General Meeting: LGBTQ Movement: recent history, works, and future for Queer Asians

September 10, 2009

Dear Q-Wavers,

With the LGBTQ movement becoming stronger and the demands for queer rights, protection and equality gaining much publicity, are we clear on what these issues are about? How does the movement affect us all as queer Asians? How can we take part in creating social changes that affect our life, our rights, our safety, and dignity as equal human beings and rightful citizens?


This month, we have invited Pauline Park andBecca Ahuja, who are both long time political activists and community organizers, to join us for an informative discussion on the recent history and direction of the LGBTQ movement, as well as the changes that have been achieved and that are continuing to develop with the involvement of queer Asians and Pacific Islanders.

Please join us all at CUNY Graduate Center to learn about what has been happening on the political forefront of the LGBTQ community, what it means for our future in this country, and what we can do to create real social and political changes.
