APIQ (Asian & Pacific Islander Queers)

APIQ (Asian & Pacific-Islander Queers) is a non-profit student organization at UC Davis founded in 1999. Our mission is to provide a safe, confidential space for students who identify as both Asian and/or Pacific-Islander and within the LGBTQIA+ community. Many of our events are open to the community, regardless of ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, or age. We hope to enrich and educate all students in the UC Davis community who are interested in queer and Asian issues. APIQ holds a variety of meetings and events throughout the year such as socials, discussions, and workshops where we explore important topics like identity, coming out, health, and politics. At the same time, we encourage strong bonds and friendships, and many consider APIQ as a second family.
