This study presents an incredible opportunity to center communities currently at the margins. It looks at our multiple identities, experiences, and concerns as individuals and communities within the broader context of our experiences as Asian Pacific Americans in the mostly white LGBT community, and as queers among the larger APA community. This study helps to explain why the broader LGBT community must defend immigrants’ rights and organize in languages other than English. It also helps to analyze traditional, race-based rights and public policy through a queer lens. Indeed, it furthers the goals of the Queer Asian Pacific Legacy Conference, which were to network, organize, agitate, educate, and build capacity.
