COME CELEBRATE WITH US!
Every year NQAPIA honors groups and leaders who have improved the lives of LGBTQ APIs. This year,
we will honor two Community Catalyst Awardees (scroll down for bios):
There will be cocktails, dinner, and an aerialist performance. All proceeds benefit NQAPIA and local LGBT API leaders to attend the National LGBT API Leadership Summit and Training in 2019. Prices increase by 20% after March 1. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
Please refrain from wearing scented lotions, perfumes, colognes, etc. to make the space more accommodating for folks who are sensitive to scents.
This event is wheelchair accessible!
What do you need or want so you can be fully present? Contact us with any accessibility questions and concerns! Email Conor at email@example.com.

Be dazzled by our aerialist performer, Sydney Ignacio!
And meet Parvesh Cheena from NBC's sitcom Outsourced, and CW's hit, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Parvesh will be NQAPIA's celebrity emcee for this dinner.
