Q & A Space / Coming Out Stories from Asian Pacific Islanders (qaspace.apiequalityla.org/)

Q&A Space began as a story collection project during Hertz Alegrio's and Shelly Chen's internship at API Equality-LA in the summer of 2012. Since then, in an effort to create more accessible, culturally relevant resources for the Asian Pacific Islander (API) LGBT community (especially youth), we at API Equality-LA have been working to develop the project into the site before you today: a “Coming Out Website” specifically designed for those who identify as API and LGBT. Q&A Space is the first website of its kind, with in-language fact sheets for parents, community resources for youth, multi-media advice and stories from the API LGBT community, and more.
