The QSEA Report, A Census of Our Own: The State of QSEA America, was published in July 2012. The report was released at NQAPIA 2012 held in Washington D.C. as the first to have any documentation and information about LGBTQ Southeast Asians. With this report published, the network hopes to achieve further visibility of the QSEA community, as well as serve as a call to action to movement builders and social change advocates to understand, include, and empower LGBTQ Southeast Asians in the nation.
