We’re a group of Asian & Pacific Islander (API) guys who like guys that aim to create a strong connected community through health, wellness, and friendship. We are 18 and up who live, work, party and/or go to school in San Francisco.

Established in 2012, The Connection has been a community for API Queer men to come together and build a safe, empowering community. Through the years, The Connection has provided a safe space for API MSMs, to learn and improve on their sexual health, discuss the meaning to being Queer and API in the community as well as be a leader to their peers. We aim to create a space to foster friendship, host social and health activities to improve health and wellness.
