The term "possibility model" was suggested by actress and trans activist Laverne Cox, who said she didn't want to be a role model, she preferred the term “possibility model”. So when Desi Rainbow Parents & Allies decided to feature conversations with LGBTQ+ people who are building relationships, families, communities, we called the program "Proud Possibilities." While we certainly believe the people featured are possibility models for the LGBTQ+ community, our purpose is to show parents and allies of Desi LGBTQ+ kids that there are many possibility models for our children's future. This program is a part of our Speaker series.
Desi Rainbow is excited to bring you new Proud Possibilities in 2022! Stay tuned for our exciting new speakers, each of whom make the Desi community proud.
