More about KQTcon:
With NQAPIA's fiscal sponsorship and Dari Project's partnership, we are a team of LGBTQ-identified Korean Americans whose dream is to host its first national conference for queer and trans youth of the Korean diaspora. With GAPA's and NQAPIA's seed money, we were able to organize and plan but we need your help to get us to the finish line. There are cost prohibitive challenges that we must overcome. All proceeds will go right back costs to execute our promise to host the largest gathering of queer and trans Korean American youth in early Spring 2017 and help our attendees get there.

The theme for the first KQTCon will revolve around family acceptance, faith communities, and mental health.

Please contact us at kqtcon@gmail.com with any questions!
