Event description

Description

Pack your best swimsuit and join GAPIMNY members on Saturday, July 7 for a beautiful afternoon of poolside drinking, eating, and raising money for a great cause!

Funds raised will go towards empowering Queer & Trans Asian Pacific Islanders through creating immigration workshops, supporting participation at the national NQAPIA conference, building coalition with other QTPOC groups, and more!

Donation ticket includes OPEN BAR and LIGHT FOOD as well as Japanese snack refreshments provided by Bokksu (www.bokksu.com).

For those who are unfamiliar with getting to Fire Island, GAPIMNY volunteers will be meeting at Penn Station in Manhattan and Atlantic Station in Brooklyn to train over together in 2 groups. Group 1 will be led by Johanes and go earlier to spend some time on the beach. Group 2 will be led by Jacob Chen and arrive shortly before the party. The schedule will go as follows:

  • 8:15am - Group 1 meets at Penn Station
  • 9:15am - Group 2 meets at Atlantic Station
  • 10:45am - Group 1 arrives on Fire Island Pines
  • 11:45am - Group 2 arrives on Fire Island Pines
  • 1:00pm - Party begins!
  • 5:00pm - Party promptly ends
  • 5:00pm - 8:00pm - Low Tea at Blue Whale Bar in FIP
  • Ferries leave from FIP to Sayville every hour

If you would like to enjoy the beach earlier in the day before the party starts, please feel free to travel to the island earlier in the morning. However, please note that the house won't be open to guests until 1pm.

Transportation costs are not included. We recommend purchasing the Fire Island Getaway vacation ticket package for $37.75 at the station that includes the round-trip train, shuttle, and ferry tickets. LIRR Trains to FIP leave from Penn, Atlantic, and Jamaica stations. Easy to understand train schedules can be found here: https://www.fairyschedule.com/

Spots are limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible to secure your spot!

Special Thanks to GAPIMNY Supporter Lou Madigan generously opening his home, GAPIMNY is having our first-ever fundraiser on Fire Island Pines!

This event is open to all queer and trans Asian Pacific Islanders and allies. For all people going, we ask that you read our values and abide by them at the event: http://gapimny.org/our-values/.
