October 11 is National Coming Out Day, and NEA has partnered with NQAPIA (National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance) to develop some powerful resources. I ask you to reach out to and support LGBTQ API young people in our schools and communities.
To help you become their strongest advocates and allies, we’re providing a number of resources, including leaflets (translated into 25 Asian and Pacific languages), support groups, videos and much more.
As an educator, I want to make sure all students have the confidence embrace who they are and be themselves. Coming out takes courage, and we have an important opportunity to make a powerful difference in the lives of LGBTQ Asian Pacific Islander youth everywhere.
