The Story of Our Logo
The Pu Foafoa, is a shell that acts as an incubator space that protects, shelters, and is ever so ready to cultivate anew as it cycles through future generations. Like the thriving sea mollusks of the Oceania region, the seashell represents safe sanctuary, and the significance of space that cultivates the growth for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community members that can only be achieved by fostering a space of belonging.
The spiral design resembles the mana of the ocean waves, true to its constant shifting nature, represents the transformative power of UTOPIA’s work.
To provide sacred spaces to strengthen the minds and bodies of QTPIs – Queer and Trans Pacific Islanders – through community organizing, community care, civic engagement and cultural stewardship.
Creating a world of cultural wealth, dignity healing & liberation for QTPIs that honors our ancestors and support future generations and ourselves.
