Post the supreme court judgement on section 377, we feel there is an urgent need to reach out to parents and relatives of LGBTQ individuals and address their fears, doubts and apprehensions about the safety, well-being and happiness of their children. Through a combination of expert counselling, free and open dialogue and a question and answer session, we hope to create a positive environment wherein alternate sexuality and the relationship between queer individuals and their family members can be affirmatively discussed.
DU Queer Collective – duqueercollective invites you to a Queer Parents and Relatives Meet on the 9th of March (Sunday), 5 pm at Max Mueller Bhawan, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, New Delhi. The session will be facilitated by Mumbai-based counselling psychologist, Deepak Kashyap.

He provides counselling and life-skills training services to corporations, corporate universities and colleges across India. He also writes widely on related topics for national newspapers and magazines, dealing with issues of mental health, sexuality, relationships and emotional disturbances.
