Lavender Phoenix (formerly known as APIENC) is powered by volunteers & members. From planning programs, to facilitating workshops, to dreaming up long term campaign strategies, our transgender, gender non-conforming, queer Asian & Pacific Islander Bay Area community leads our work! LavNix works locally, on unceded Ohlone land in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

We know we will only be able to create worlds of safety and transformation with a strong community of dedicated people. That's where YOU come in!

Are you a trans queer API person who wants to...

- Create spaces for transgender, queer, LGBTQ+ API people to live as their fullest selves?

- Build alliances to advance the fight for social justice in the Bay Area?

- Learn and practice values-based organizing skills?

- Join a vibrant and radically welcoming community?

Once you sign up, we will reach out within a few weeks to connect and plug you into a variety of roles for our vision for change! When you sign up to become a member, you're signing up to learn our collective histories, practice our values, and build a long-lasting community with other trans and queer API people in the Bay Area. 

To make our work more powerful, we are prioritizing membership of LGBTQI+ API people who are..….

- Born/raised in the Bay Area (and living in the Bay) 

- working class

- trans, gender non-conforming, intersex, non binary

- Pacific Islander, South East Asian, South Asian, and Central Asian

- directly impacted by the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC) and/or the Medical Industrial Complex (MIC)

If you do not identify with these priority groups, there are still many ways to be involved with our work for trans and queer API liberation!

If you live outside of the Bay Area or are not trans queer and API, we encourage you to donate at or follow us on social media (@lavenderphoenix on Instagram).
