Dear Community Members,
Over the past few months, we at GAPIMNY have heard an increasing
number of stories about gay Asian/Pacific Islander men being barred
from entering certain clubs in NYC.
We are concerned that these actions reflect racist policies within
clubs — policies that not only discriminate against gay Asian/Pacific
Islanders but other queer and trans people of color, too.
And we want to do something about it.
But first, we’d like to learn more about these incidents so that we
can move to next steps in addressing this issue.
Please help us by providing your story or a friend’s story regarding
being denied access to a club that in any way seems unwarranted.
Please fill out this form per incident and provide as much detail as
Your information is confidential and won’t be used for anything but
