Mission Statement

Trikone offers a supportive, empowering and non-judgmental environment where LGBTQ South Asians and their allies can meet, make connections, and proudly promote awareness and acceptance of their sexual identity.

Trikone works towards:

  1. Bringing people of South Asian heritage and their allies together
  2. Promoting awareness, visibility, and cultural and legal acceptance of people with alternative sexual orientations and gender identities
  3. Helping people to proudly affirm both their South Asian identity as well as their sexual orientation

Trikone actively works against all forms of oppression based on race, gender, religion, class, sexual orientation, and other identities.

Through our award-winning magazine, conferences, cultural events, film festivals, pride celebrations, and a host of other collaborative programming, Trikone works hard to nurture and empower the LGBTQ South Asian community in the Bay Area and their allies across the globe.
