The A&PI LGBT Pavilion is a great community space for A&PI LGBT folk and their allies to enjoy a day of celebration while getting in touch with their community. The Pavilion serves as a space for community non-profit and for-profit organizations to inform and interact with over 250,000 attendees that stream through the pavilion.
This pavilion takes place Sunday afternoon of SF Pride and will be outdoors along Polk St between Golden Gate Ave and Eddy St. Expect a chance for your organization to connect with attendees, network with other organizations, and promote sex education through interactive activities, raffles, and much more!
Getting a booth will be a great way for your organizations to meet the attendees that could potentially grow your membership base and foster potential supporters. Furthermore this will be an opportunity for you to showcase your organizations and establish a stronger presence in the A&PI LGBT community.
This year, we will be subsidizing or giving out for free 6 or more booths to qualified applicants. Note that there are guidelines that your organization will need to follow if chosen to get a booth. Unfortunately, the deadline for submitting booth applications for this year has already passed, but if you would like to find out about other ways to get involved, please contact Jonathan Cheung at [email protected] for more information.

Cal Q&A was founded a decade ago on the UC Berkeley campus as a student organization dedicated to the intersectionality of the Queer and Asian identities. Through weekly meetings, various monthly events, and our annual conference, Cal Q&A acts as a safe space, social group, and support network for any and every student on the UC Berkeley campus.
The Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) is a 501c4/Non-Profit Organization that seeks to be the active political voice for the API gay/bisexual men and greater queer community at large. We are an organization dedicated to furthering the interests of our collective community by creating awareness, by developing a positive collective identity and by establishing a supportive community. Our organization has supported and spearheaded a number of movements within our community and proudly stands side-by-side with a number of community agencies and partners like API Equality, Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center, API Family Pride, NQAPIA, Gameboi, and ShangriLa. Additionally, given our 501c4 legal standing, we are able to endorse, promote, advocate and fundraise for a number of campaigns, props, and political constituents that have the API Queer Community interest at heart. GAPA sees the API Pavillion/Parade as another tremendous opportunity to extend our reach, connect, and support our community during one of the biggest demonstrations of pride and unity.
Based in the San Francisco bay area, GAPA Foundation is a philanthropic organization that provides funds and leverages resources to empower the API LGBTQ community.

Currently we provide academic scholarships to non-traditional API LGBTQ students and core funding to under-resourced and/or underrepresented local community organizations and projects. In addition to the monetary support, GAPA Foundation also seeks to nurture and support these organizations for future growth and independence through infrastructural support such as mentorship and leadership development.
