To succeed at Stanford and beyond, it is important to optimize both physical and mental health through healthy lifestyle choices and habits. The A3C iLive series aims to dispel misconceptions, increase awareness, and encourage dialogue about health and well-being topics relevant to Asian Americans, as well as to introduce students to resources on campus.

Queer and API: Navigating the Intersections

We all live with multiple identities, and the intersections of these identities can create unique challenges for healthy identity development. With the intersection of being Asian and Pacific Islander (API) and queer, the cultural aspects of the API community may lead to difficulties in navigating the queer identity. These challenges may include: interpersonal/community dynamics, cultural and familial expectations, coping with the experience of being multiply marginalized or stereotyped, and building resilience. Whether you are API and/or queer or an ally, please come join us for an interactive discussion about the common themes and dynamics that may arise for queer people of API descent.
