Desi Parents of LGBTQIA+ youth tell us that there are very few spaces where their children feel affirmed in both their South Asian and LGBTQIA+ identity. We heard you!
We're excited to announce that we are piloting our very first Desi Rainbow Youth Summer Camp, a virtual, two day gathering August 4-5, for LGBTQIA+ youth from the Desi Diaspora in North America. A team of Desi LGBTQIA+ leadership has planned a thoughtful set of educational activities, all conducted by LGBTQIA+ presenters. Workshops will offer a look at LGBTQIA+ and South Asian history, media representation, health and wellness, all tailored just for Desi LGBTQIA+ youth 10-15.
This kind of national community building for Desi LGBTQIA+ youth has never been available before, and we proud of the LGBTQIA+ leaders and parents who have come together to build it.
Only 10 spaces are available. A parent or guardian must submit the signed application. Registration ends on July 20th at 6pm EST.
The camp is being offered free of charge. We ask families who can afford to consider making a donation to support our pioneering work.
