Everyone Deserves Safety and Justice!

We provide sacred spaces to strengthen the minds and bodies of Queer and Trans Pacific Islanders (QTPIs) through community organizing, community care, civic engagement and cultural stewardship.

UTOPIA Seattle was born out of the struggles, challenges, strength and resilience among the Pacific Islander LGBTQI community. Since 2009, we have strived to create a safe, welcoming, supportive and vibrant space for members of our community to address basic needs, to build pathways toward new expanded career and life opportunities, to foster a sense of common purpose, and to advocate for social justice, education and overall wellness among members of the Pacific Islander LGBTQI community. We also seek to build trust and common ground between the Pacific Islander community and the LGBTQI community, who often share many of the same issues and concerns.

Health and Safety

We provide safety and sanctuary for our community members, many of whom routinely experience hate, harassment and abuse, as well as rejection and disconnection from within the Pacific Islander community. We serve as a trusted, culturally aligned resource for Pacific Islanders in the LGBTQI community, in helping them access transgender health services, housing and other services. We provide support groups and assistance for Pacific Islanders in the sex industry, providing testing kits, HIV prevention and screening, and contraceptives and other important healthcare resources. We also work to connect QTPI to healthcare resources like insurance and preventative care to address health disparities.

Support for Immigrants

For those in the LGBTQI community who have newly emigrated from the Pacific Islands, we provide short-term housing and help them obtain the services they need while also standing with them in challenging race- and gender-based discrimination in areas of employment, housing, education and everyday life. We provide interpretation services to parents of QTPI students as well as other who need help navigating resources as they apply for college and work to build a new life in this country.
