GLSEN, the leading education organization working to create safe and inclusive K-12 schools for LGBTQ youth.

Students thrive when they see positive reflections of themselves in their curriculum. For Asian LGBTQ students, this means learning about and honoring history, people, and events related to their intersectional identity as both Asian/Pacific Islander and LGBTQ.

Grow Now

Throughout Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, GLSEN’s National Student Council members Sarah Bunn and Marcus Breed used GLSEN’s Instagram to share the queer API icons who’ve made an impact on their lives. See their posts below and add your own icon to the conversation with #APIqueericons on Twitter or Instagram. Don’t forget to tag GLSEN!

Although the last month of May was officially API heritage Month, Asian and Pacific Islander LGBTQ identities should be part of an inclusive school curriculum all year round. Visit for more info and resources about supporting Asian LGBTQ students.
