These awards are a chance for us to come together, share a multi-course banquet, enjoy performances by AAPI artists, and honor incredible organizations and leaders in the LGBTQ AAPI community.
When you get involved with the Community Catalyst Awards, you not only show your support in celebrating, but this is also an opportunity to raise money for continued organizing and advocacy in the LGBTQ AAPI community.
PERFORMER(S) WANTED!!! For this year's Catalyst Award dinner banquet (to be held on the evening of March 12, at 88 Palace on East Broadway), we're looking for someone in our community who can put on a 5-7 minute performance during the program. Based on the existing line-up, a musical or even a movement-based act would be ideal (there are a lot of acceptance speeches), but we're open to any performer from Q-WAVE's community of queer women and trans/gender nonconforming folks!
There's a small honorarium involved, plus a free seat at the dinner, plus the chance to entertain and network with our 2016 Catalyst awardees:
- Conrad Ricamora, from ABC's "How to Get Away with Murder" and Broadway’s “The King & I”
- Faisal Alam, Founding Member of Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity (MASGD)
- The Asian/Pacific/American Studies Institute at NYU
- & our emcee, actor Daniel K. Issac!
