Instead, we're asking you to make a monthly pledge at an amount that feels comfortable to you. You can pledge just $1 per month or more - it is all up to you. We are grateful for your support. Your money allows us to keep documenting and sharing the stories that often go untold in our societies, the stories of the Ethnic LGBT+ community. Together, let's share our stories to create a more inclusive and safe society.
I know what it is like to feel invisible, to not see yourself. For ten years I struggled to navigate between by cultural identity and my sexual identity, feeling I could either be Indian or gay. A turning point for me was finally being able to bring my family into my full identity. This gave me the courage to found Ethnic LGBT+ in 2017. To date, Ethnic LGBT+ has reached 5,000 individuals across every continent. That's 5,000 people who potentially could not see themselves before.
I believe that by sharing your story, you can save lives, people can start to see themselves. I have been travelling across the Asia-Pacific to collect the stories of LGBTIQ+ communities in India, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam. To continue documenting these important stories, stories that often go untold, I need you help.
Your support means I can continue to capture people's lives and to share their stories, especially in remote and regional Australia. I can help make them feel visible, connected and part of a bigger community.
Every donation, no matter how small, enables me to continue to do the work I do, to firstly empower CALD LGBTIQ+ individuals with the tools and ability to share their story, secondly the space to share their story and thirdly a forum in which to access their story and see themselves.
Every story counts. Every story needs to be told. Together, let's share our stories.
