Frequently Asked Questions

Who is welcome and who attends Asians & Friends potlucks and events?:
Members and guests range in age from early 20s, 30s, and 40s, to some who are of a more distinguished age. This includes international students, managers, lawyers, doctors, bankers, retailers, real estate professionals, CEOs, accountants, artists, clerks, travel agents, psychologists, therapists, and engineers - singles, couples of all ages and ethnicities, many in long-term committed relationships for years or even decades, that share a common background and purpose: friendship and mutual support for one another.

Some members are very "closeted" or questioning their sexual orientation; supportive heterosexual family and friends often attend Asians & Friends events and potlucks; other members are somewhere in the coming-out process, and members who have lived openly gay for many years.

Although most members are Asian-American, the rest are non-Asian. Currently, men comprise of most of our membership - women are encouraged and welcome to join.

What if I am not Asian?
We welcome members of all races, culture and backgrounds. You need not be Asian. Approximately half of our membership is non-Asian. We have people from all walks of life with the common thread of support, honest fun, friendships and appreciation for Asian culture and peoples.

Asians and Friends endeavor is to create a safe environment for gay men and women who are looking for an alternative social outlet to the scene whilst providing a harassment-free atmosphere for Asians against unwanted advances. We always stress that we are not a dating club and welcome anyone who is looking for friendship and camaraderie. Of course, single persons may meet a future lifelong partner at the club, but our primary goal is to provide a space where people can socialize, share common interests, build bridges between different cultures and have fun. Individuals often sometimes develop lasting relationships with other members of the group and we are happy to provide opportunities for fellowship for our members. We encourage everyone to make safe, informed, healthy and responsible decisions and treat others with sincerity, honesty, respect and dignity.
