Asian Pride Project + NQAPIA’s Public Service Announcements

If you’ve visited this site before, you know that we love bringing more queer, trans and questioning Asian Pacific Islanders visibility in the media. Our movements are often ignored and sidestepped when we’re not making and being a part of the media and it is for that reason that we’re extremely excited and proud to share with you the work of The Asian Pride Project and The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) in their creation of several Public Service Announcements where parents of Queer and Trans Asian Pacific Islanders share their stories of support and love for their children. unnamed

Here’s more from the creators of the PSAs:

Asian Pride Project is excited to announce the first airings of multilingual Public Service Announcements (PSAs) with parents expressing their love for their Asian American and South Asian LGBT children.  

Bilingual videos will be first aired THIS WEEK in Hindi, Tagalog, Korean, Japanese and Mandarin on KTSF and LA18 TV in California, stations that serve two of the nation’s largest Asian American TV Markets. 

Watch this heartwarming PSA from Deanna, a Chinese Mandarin-speaking mom, expressing her love for her gay son.
