LGBTQ+ AAPI Day of Visibility 2020
On June 1, Rangoli Pittsburgh is celebrating LGBTQ+ AAPI Day of Visibility, and we’re kicking it off with a special Asian drag show on May 31st on Instagram Live (@rangolipgh)!
We’ll be featuring performances by:
– Demon Daddy
– Kaamani Sutra
– Lana Patel
– Manghoe Lassi
– Masala Sapphire
– Polly A. Maury & Aloysius D.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be highlighting Asian and LGBTQ+ organizations and mutual aid funds that could use your support, as well as other resources in our LGBTQ+ AAPI Day of Visibility toolkit: https://bit.ly/2LZSrIc
We will be raising money to support two funds that are doing important work to support our fellow community members who have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are able, please consider donating to:
– Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA) community relief fund: https://tinyurl.com/apalafund
– SisTers PGH LGBTQIA+ relief fund for folks in Pittsburgh: https://tinyurl.com/sistersfund
We ask you to use the hashtags #QueerAndAsian #QAAPI #QAAPIDay to share your stories and histories, your selfies, your LGBTQ+ heroes, and your beautiful LGBTQ+ AAPI selves! Check out our LGBTQ+ AAPI Day of Visibility Toolkit for some inspiration (https://bit.ly/2LZSrIc) and follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and FB at @rangolipgh to participate on June 1!
