It seems to me that gay people just love traveling for fun. I think they are more willing spend big on traveling compared to straight guys too. Gay dollars have become a big business. In our next session we will chat about the gayest travel destinations in the US. We will first share our own picks of the gayest destinations and the reason why. I'll later reveal the results from Out Magazine's travel website on the top 20 gayest destination in the US. The website also suggests the most popular events in those destinations. We will see who has the most correct picks.

(After our rap session, we'll head out to a local dive for dinner together as a group.)

Due to the sensitive topics and subjects we discuss at our rap sessions which often times are only applicable to Queer Asian/Pacific Islanders (APIs), we appreciate the understanding of our non-API friends and allies to join us at all other sbQA events. SBQA raps are a safe and empowering space for Queer APIs

Hi Campers!

The ever-popular sbQA camping trip is now open for reservations! On the weekend of August 24-26, the hot guys of sbQA will be roughing it at Big Basin State Park in the Santa Cruz mountains.

It has great hiking trails, from easy to challenging. Besides the fantastic company, come for the awesome meals that sbQA camping trips are famous for. It's a great place to enjoy nature, get away from the hectic pace of city life, and for meeting new friends. And yes, there are flush toilets at the campsite and hot showers.

Being gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual can be a challenging experience for many of us. It becomes even more complicated when you involve mom and dad, family and being Asian. Many questions arise. Who should I date? How do I play it safe when it comes to sex? Where have all the cowboys gone? How do I meet Mr./Ms. Right? How do I tell my family about me? Where do I meet men or women?

So let's talk! At our rap sessions, we meet in a group to talk about various different topics. SBQA presents a variety of interesting topics, including "coming out," relationships, discrimination, and safe-sex. Members can also bring up personal issues to the group and receive feedback and advice. And we do it in a safe, relaxing, friendly environment. Everything is kept confidential, so don't worry!

Our rap sessions are open to all Asian and Pacific Islander gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual or questioning men and women. We meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Billy DeFrank Center in San Jose, CA. Join us for dinner afterwards at a nearby restaurant.
