Movement building at a global scale is a Herculean task and the Global Queer Desi Project is attempting to take a small step towards creating a coherent dialogue among queer South Asians in the on the sub-continent and the diaspora. This site featurea resources that aim to break isolation for queer South Asians in the diaspora as well as share resources and provide support across borders within the region and across the world.
This blog has essentially come out of the need in the diaspora for a one stop destination for information and resources pertaining to queer issues. As we continue to build this blog into a viable website, we hope that our visitors will contribute to the blog’s growth into a channel where everything that is concurrent and relevant for South Asians across the world can be found here.
Some exciting things to check out:
- a comprehensive bibliography
- a comprehensive filmography
- listings of active South Asian queer groups across the subcontinent and diaspora
- RSS feeds and links to publications
