Gaysi Family is a media platform and safe zone for queer desis that was formed in 2008. We hold space for queer folx from across Southeast Asia to share their stories and experiences, while engaging with others from the community.
We believe that it is critical to understand what it means to be queer. While people are aware that being queer means being LGBT, we must also understand that queerness is a philosophy, a politics, a sensibility. Queerness extends beyond sexual orientations, gender definitions or identities, and includes anything that’s different or alternative to the structures normalized in contemporary society.
Gaysi's platform amplifies individual voices, enabling more people to meditate on and relate to what it means to be queer.
