      About Q&A

Queer & Asian (Q&A) aims to build a supportive network amongst members of the Stanford community who are interested in exploring queer & Asian identities and issues.  We provide a safe space for all of our members to socialize with others, talk about their lives and common problems, and learn more about issues that are important to them.

Founded in the late 80s to early 90s, Q&A had much of the same goals as it does now.  We hope to establish a strong sense of community amongst our members through mutual respect, social interaction, and a collective awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ) issues pertinent to Asians and Pacific Islanders (APIs).



      Safe Space

Q&A highly respects our members' privacies.  Regardless of whether you are still questioning, out, or an ally, everyone is welcome.   All of our members have the right to remain anonymous and anything that happens during our meetings, events, or online stay within the group.  Q&A wishes to build a supportive network for all our members and we honor their diversity.  Mutual respect and a mentality of non-judgment are key to building a close community.



Join one of our sib families!

Q&A provides our members with the opportunity to become part of a sib family.  Sib families develop the same notions of community and looking after one another that our organization supports on a smaller scale.  Siblings usually go on social outings together, provide support, and share advice about life, school, and the LGBTQQ community.
