The Bay Area is home to some of the earliest Queer and Trans Asian and Pacific Islander (QTAPI) organizations in the nation. Starting in the 70’s and 80’s, QTAPI groups have been organizing for justice and equity in our communities, and many of those same groups are still continuing to do so. Born out of a collaborative process responding to the current needs of our community, When Pigs Fly Over the Moon is a historic event bringing together many of the Bay Area’s QTAPI serving organizations in one place. It is inter-organizational, inter-generational, showcases our community talent and strengths, shows off our rich history, and raises funds for a common cause (API Pride Pavilion). Think of it as part mixer, part resource fair, part talent showcase, and part history exhibit, with as much of our community in one place as possible to raise funds for the API Pride Pavilion to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of SF Pride, and the 20th Anniversary of the API Pride Pavilion.
A community resource fair with QTAPI organizations tabling in the lobby, performances and showcases of community talent and stories in the theatre, a conference room for breakout sessions and meetups, and a history exhibit featuring some of earliest QTAPI organizers.
