UTOPIA Logo

UTOPIA is a transgender-led, member-based organization in Seattle that was born out of the struggles, challenges, strength and resilience among the Pacific Islander LGBTQI community in Southeast Seattle and South King County. Since 2009, UTOPIA strives to create a safe, welcoming, supportive and vibrant space for members of the 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.  UTOPIA also seeks 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.  Work is organized around 5 key areas: 1) education and employment, 2) support and safety, 3) support for immigrants, 4) advocacy, and 5) community building.
