Are you a South-Asian who is either questioning your sexuality or gender or identifies as an LGBTQIA person? We are a group of South Asians who are looking to create a safe, closed, secret and private space for South Asian queer and questioning folks to hang out. The space will be completely confidential and we have the utmost respect for your confidentiality.
From KhushTexas' website: --Khush according to Pratibha Parmar: "“Khush” means ecstatic pleasure in Urdu. For South Asian lesbians and gay men in Britain, North America, and India the term captures the blissful intricacies of being queer and of color. Inspiring testimonies bridge geographical differences to locate shared experiences of isolation and exoticization but also the unremitting joys and solidarity of being “khush”."
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending our meetings, receiving more information, or have any questions, comments or suggestions! Khush is a sponsored group of GenEq.
Please see the Campus Life and Leadership Student Organizations website for a searchable database of all student organizations at UC Berkeley. (Tip: use search terms like "women" and "LGBT.")

TBTN is A Night of Empowerment Against Sexual and Relationship Violence at UC Berkeley. Take Back the Night is a program of GenEq.
V-Day at UC Berkeley is not only a cohort of Program Assistants at the Gender Equity Resource Center that puts on playwright Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues every year to raise money to end violence against women, but we are a movement on campus and in our community. To get involved, keep your eye out for cast and crew auditions at the start of the Fall semester! To be sure to receive that information, join GenEq's Newsletter List here!
