Coming Out: Living Authentically as LGBTQ+ Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders

Produced by the HRC Foundation

Coming out is a personal choice, and the lifelong coming out experience is different for everybody. For those of us who identify as LGBTQ+ and as people of color, it can often feel like we are living at the cusp of an intersection that is challenging to manage. For many Asian and Pacific Islander Americans, coming out is a lifelong process that can require a different approach because of cultural norms or traditions that emphasize duty to family and community.

The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance and HRC Foundation's Coming Out as LGBTQ Asian and Pacific Islander Americans resource is designed to aid LGBTQ+ API Americans in navigating the intersectional challenges when coming out.
