In recent years we’ve witnessed our trans, gender nonconforming, and nonbinary community make big strides, but we’re still not safe or free. When it comes to documenting our community needs, there are FEW resources that speak to the wide variety of experiences within the “TGNC API” umbrella, especially in the Bay Area. TGNC API folks are many different genders, have different ethnicities, and come from many cultures. We deserve an understanding of our community that speaks to the diversity of our experiences.

APIENC is launching a needs assessment survey, as a group of TGNC API people, in order to better serve our own communities.

Our goal is to hear from all of you so we can identify the needs of transgender, gender nonconforming, and nonbinary Asians and Pacific Islanders in the Bay Area, better understand the current landscape of resources and gaps to inform APIENC’s strategies and initiatives. We also want to uplift leadership and develop the skills of TGNC API leaders to build community-centered programs.

If you identify as transgender, gender nonconforming or nonbinary and are Asian & Pacific Islander living in the Bay Area, please participate! It is for us, by us, to serve us!
