      Watch KTSF and LA18 TV for Asian / South Asian Parents who Love their LGBT Kids

      Wouldn’t it be amazing to have Asian American and South Asian parents who love their LGBT kids say that on television?

      This week, tune into KSCI-TV in Los Angeles “LA18” and KTSF in the San Francisco Bay Area and see for yourselves!

      NQAPIA and the Asian Pride Project have collaborated to develop a series of multilingual public service announcements (PSA) -- short beautiful videos of Asian American. South Asian, and Southeast Asian parents who love their lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) children. We have been working with Asian ethnic television stations to air these PSAs during the month of June. Samples of the videos can be viewed here: 

      Our goal is to diversify the faces of parents who have LGBT kids and to promote understanding and acceptance.

      KTSF and LA18 serve the nation's two largest Asian American TV markets.  They will air bilingual videos in Hindi, Tagalog, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin.  We are still working on placing the Cantonese and Vietnamese videos. We are also working on having these  PSAs aired in additional TV markets around the country.

      Please watch and take pride in our parents who love us.

      We think it's fabulous you're connected, informed, and engaged with us. If you ever want to disconnect, we'll understand and it'll be as easy as clicking the button below.
