Coming Out and Overcoming


A storytelling workshop for Queer and Trans Asian American and Pacific Islander community members. Join us in sharing stories of coming out, transitioning, acceptance, and struggle while also tackling the intersectional issues of immigrant, refugee, undocumented, adoptee statuses and other positionalities.

Our Goal:

Promote awareness, understanding, build relationships, and ultimately create an affinity group for local queer and trans AAPI community members.


Each workshop will be led by a facilitator and a guest writer/artist to engage the community members in conversation and writing exercises. After sharing their work, we will be curating pieces to be recorded as a Twine game with animation and digital art.

Workshop participants will be paid a stipend!

Join us!
