Through these shared stories, I have began to treat my own traumas with compassion, and recognized the humanity that unites us rather than the differences that divides." -YuFei</p><p>"The yellow glitter mental health support sessions have helped me become much more proud of my queer API identity! Connecting with other like-minded folks through our similar experiences and reflecting on those I have not experienced, it has opened my eyes up to the wide spectrum of our community." -Alvin</p><p></p><p><strong>LGBTQ+ Asians only</strong></p><p>To honor the safe space for our community, the demographic for this group will be for those who identify as <strong>LGBTQ+ &amp; Asian Pacific </strong>(LGBTQ+ East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, Pacific Islander, Native Hawaiian, and Mixed-Race).
