Family is still family campaign

NQAPIA has launched an international, multifaceted campaign to promote the acceptance of LGBTQ people in API families and to diversify the faces and languages of those who support the LGBTQ community. Their “Family is Still Family” campaign offers a powerful message: offer your LGBTQ child a lifeline, support their coming out, and keep the family strong and unified.

The campaign includes 9 multilingual PSAs and 26 translated resources available to view and download.
