When our kids come out, It’s not always the same. We need to pay attention

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.
