It’s that time of year again!

The leaves change their colors, there’s a cool chill in the air and that wool sweater you haven’t worn since last winter gets to stretch its legs!

And just as you get ready to eat a handful of candy corn, you get that inkling of a thought….

Yes! It’s time for APIQWTC Halloween Hold’em game night! The most frightening, spooky and candy-filled events of the year….

So get that wacky costume on (or if your coming as yourself, even wackier!) and join us!

This year we are having games, snacks, pumpkin carving and a showing of the banquet highlight reel! Please feel free to bring games!

Friday, 10/30, 6-8:30pm

What does it mean to listen to each other? What does it mean to communicate across generations? Through the “Intergenerational Conversations” series of events, we are engaging with the different ways that LGBTQ API people have supported each other, built community, and created history.

This is a Dragon Fruit collaboration between API Equality - Northern California, Trikone BayArea, and GAPA-Gay Asian Pacific Alliance. RSVP to any of our 4 events!

BAAAAH-RAM-EWE - WE WANT YOU... TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE APIQWTC 2015 LUNAR NEW YEAR BANQUET - YEAR OF THE SHEEP!!!

Every spring, a small, dedicated group puts on APIQWTC's biggest party and fundraiser of the year. Without the help of our awesome Banquet volunteers, APIQWTC would not be able to provide scholarships for the up-and-coming leaders of our community, support other LGBTQ groups in the Bay, host social events and meet-ups, and sponsor like-minded causes that advance our rights and visibility.

By volunteering for just an hour or two during the Banquet, you can help make the Banquet more fabulous and successful.

Do you have time to help out with the entertainment program, silent auction, raffle, registration, etc.? We would love to hear from you and we will work with whatever interests and time you can offer during the event.

Please contact Joanne at joanne at apiqwtc dot org with your availability.

Greetings Talented and Generous APIQWTC Community!

APIQWTC is preparing for our Year of the Sheep/Goat Lunar New Year Banquet, which will take place Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at House of Banquet in San Francisco, Inner Richmond district.

QueeRoc aims at providing a space for Arab-­identifying lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and questioning (LGBTQ) individuals in the Bay Area to meet for the purpose of community building and resource sharing through informal exchange of experiences and knowledge as well as social activities.

We enthusiastically invite you to contribute your talents, skills and resources to our auction and raffle!!

What can I donate, you ask?
