by Kristen Surla

As more people begin to question, challenge, explore, and celebrate gender and sexuality on college campuses, there is an increased need to find educational opportunities to learn more about the topics and history of gender and sexuality. Discussing gender and sexuality within communities of color is necessary because it acknowledges the role of intersectionality in shaping one’s personal experiences. LGBTQ Asian American, Desi, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander people have so much to contribute to the community at AANAPISIs. Becoming involved in gender and sexuality programs is one way that students can participate and explore the intersections of their identities.
