There is very little research available for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) Asian American (A/A) youth and the influence family support has on their wellbeing. In line with this, there continues to be a lack of services available to address their specific needs. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for a therapeutic intervention support group for A/A parents/caregivers and their LGBTQ youth. The literature review describes the unique experiences of being Asian Americans and LGBTQ and the influence of their culture and family has on their sexual and gender identity. Moreover, it explains the risk and protective factors of being LGBTQ A/A youth and how their family can play an integral role. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
