British Asian LGBTI

BritishAsianLGBTI

Support for British Asian LGBTI community.

Why is this minority group so under represented and what is the common experience? This online forum aims to help unite this community and reduce isolation and discrimination faced, defend global LGBTI rights (including repealing Section 377 in India and Asia), specializing in intersectionality of race and sexuality issues. Since September 2013, this group does important work on queer visibility and aims to reduce homophobia and racism, improving understanding of South Asian LGBTI mental health issues as well as promote acceptance. See also the #salgbtukhashtag for related groups including Birmingham South Asians LGBT Finding A Voice (FAV), Gaysian Faces and Gaysians.org In 2017, the groups teamed up to help mobilise around 100 “Gaysians” who took part in Pride in London parade, with a presence at Birmingham Pride. The inaugral South Asian LGBTI conference took place in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham in July 2018. With 18 speakers and 2 short film screenings, the day aimed to create a safe space for members of the Gaysian community. Recently we have been hosting 4pm socials on Zoom and now have a brand new MeetUp.com group based in London.
