“I am who I am today because of my personal journey of immigrating to the U.S., growing up in Texas, and coming out. As someone who previously didn’t feel completely comfortable nor fully accepted as a gay man in the AA and NHPI community nor as an Asian man in the LGBTQ community, I have found APIAHF to be an place where I can embrace all of my identities and lean into our organizational values of respect, fairness, equity, and health justice for all.”
