Time and again the need has been felt 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.

Keeping this in mind, DU Queer Collective – duqueercollective is pleased to invite you to its Second Edition of Parents and Relatives of Queer Persons Meet on the 15th of February (Monday), 7 pm at Max Mueller Bhawan, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, New Delhi.

Through a combination of expert counselling, free and open dialogue and a question and answer session, we hope to create a positive environment wherein sexuality and the relationship between queer individuals and their family members can be affirmatively discussed. The session will be facilitated by Mumbai-based counselling psychologist, Deepak Kashyap.

We encourage LGBTQ individuals to join us with their parent(s)/sibling(s)/relatives(s) as the purpose of the Meeting is to ensure that support structures for parents and family of queer persons exist.

Deepak has conducted several parents meet in Mumbai, offered counselling to parents of queer individuals and is actively involved with Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). 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.

Please Note: This is a closed community event and we will not allow photography and/or video recording while the session is on. The event is not open to the media and media persons who identify as community members and wish to attend the event are requested to respect these guidelines.

IMPORTANT: Since we have limited seats and would like to reach out to queer individuals, their family and friends only, we request you to RSVP with your name and phone number at duqueercollective@gmail.com at the earliest. Please also mention who you are bringing along.
