What is NAAAP Pride?

Pride is the newest program developed by NAAAP. It is here to empower, educate, engage, and celebrate the Asian American LGBTQ+ professional community by providing education, promoting visibility, and developing current and future Asian LGBTQ+ leaders.

NAAAP will provide resources and support for those in all stages of the coming out process. And support those creating safe and affirming work and learning spaces. All so Asian American LGBTQ+ persons can live, work, and study  – safely, openly, and genuinely.

Our Program Objectives

  • Educating our members about the Asian American LGBTQ+ community.
  • Promoting visibility and support to members, allies, and corporations
  • Identifying and celebrating strategic partners, supporters, and advancements within the Asian American LGBTQ+ community.


We’re looking for a few good volunteers to help us grow the Pride Program!

Interested? Please email Rose Olea to learn more.
