Khush: South Asian Queer, Questioning and LGBT Space

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 khush.berkeley@gmail.com 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.
