GAPA 35+ Potluck Dinner Meeting

Venue: A Home Northeast of Little Saigon in San Francisco CA
Near BART Powell Station

RSVP: Please email vincent@gapa.org with your full name AND cell#.


Rap Topic: : "Surviving Bias, Bullying and Domestic Violence".  For some of us, the worst is behind us in terms with dealing with bias, bullying and domestic violence, but for those, not so much.  Even celebrities have harrowing stories to tell.  Robin Givens was battered at the hands of boxer Mike Tyson.  Madonna was reportedly hit by Sean Penn with a baseball bat.  And that gay college kid at Rutgers University who was a victim of bullying, committed suicide.  And how many times have you dreaded being called names or ostracized or shunned because of bias against you?  While most of us survived, others paid the ultimate price: with their lives.  How did you survive and what can you tell those who are struggling with this issue?  If you want to share your thoughts or experiences on this topic, or if you simply want to socialize or listen to others, come to this GAPA 35+ monthly dinner meeting.  Of course, the Vegas rule is strictly followed:  Whatever is said here, stays here!  Whatever is said here, stays here!

Potluck: Please bring a dinner entree good for 6 to 8 servings.
Note: Open only to gay/bi Asian or Pacific Islander Men at least 35 years old
