APIQWTC was formed in Feb of 1999 as a
means of networking & communicating among Bay Area Asian &
Pacific Islander queer women's and transgender people's
organizations and constituencies. APIQWTC was formerly Asian
Pacific Sisters (APS) and a part of Asian Pacific
Lesbians and Bisexuals Network (APLBN), now APLBTN
inclusive of Transgender Women.
Til today, APIQWTC sponsors several major events
each year. We organize our annual Lunar New Year Banquet where
we also present our Phoenix award to recognize and honor leaders
in our community. We march in the San Francisco Lunar New Year
Parade, Gay Pride Parade, Dyke March, Sistah's Steppin' in
Pride, and East Bay Pride. We throw yearly summer and sport
BBQs. We also hold workshops and conferences and are
accepting suggestions (and volunteers). Checkout

We are always looking to partner and support
events and activities with other organizations and individuals
to serve the Asian Pacific Islander Queer Women and Transgender
community and our allies. Some of them are listed in
