A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to support NAAAP Pride and the Kansas City Center for Inclusion.

If you are unable to attend the Gala but would like to support these organizations,
you can still help by donating to the evening’s fundraising event.

NAAAP Pride is a national program by The National Association of Asian American Professionals. It is here to empower, educate, engage, and celebrate the Asian American LGBTQ+ professional community and its allies by providing education, promoting visibility, and developing current and future LGBTQ+ leaders. We will provide resources and support for those in all stages of the coming out process and for those creating safe and affirming work and learning spaces where Asian American LGBTQ+ students and employees can live, work, and study safely, openly, and genuinely.

Kansas City Center for Inclusion provides safe, inclusive LGBTQIA+ community spaces where people can come for education, resources, and activities, as well as support a more cohesive LGBTQIA+ community in the greater Kansas City area.
