gay asian pacific alliance GAPA
To be a voice for the LGBTQ API communities in the San Francisco Bay Area and Beyond
Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) was formed from the need for an organization to address, through a democratic process, social, cultural, and political issues affecting LGBTQ APIs. GAPA was formally organized in January 1988. Among many accomplishments, GAPA planted the seed to what would became the Asian and Pacific Islander Wellness Center. Cultural outlets endure including the GAPA Men’s Chorus and GAPA Runway, now managed by GAPA Foundation. We provide resources and visibility and establish a network with local, national, and international groups that share our concerns and vision.
We have a volunteer/outreach committee to get volunteers on-board and provide training and support to GAPA volunteers.
