Family Acceptance 
in the Desi Community

We seek to build a community where diversity of sexual orientation and gender identity are valued, affirmed and celebrated by all.


Desi Rainbow Parents & Allies provides a supportive and affirming space for South Asian LGBTQIA+ people and their families to talk about family relationships and learn about gender identity and sexual orientation.

Desi Rainbow is currently only able to serve folks who live primarily in North America. As a mostly volunteer-operated organization, our capacity is limited. If you live outside of North America, please check out our resources page for other organizations who may be better equipped to meet your needs:

"It's been very helpful to know that so many families from my community are in the same position as mine. Before finding this group through online research, I was feeling very alone and hopeless."



Our community is primarily virtual and meets online for support and education. We host monthly support and discussion groups for the community and host regular education events, inclusive holiday celebrations and much more.


Donate today to help us lay the foundation of our community! 


We offer a variety of programs and support groups to fit different needs. See what works for you!
