South Asian LGBTQ Support Groups

​"Healing of spirit, emotions, body, and heart take precedence over everything."​

Support groups for South Asians who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or who are questioning (LGBTQ) their identity.

South Asians face unique cultural influences that place additional or alternative challenges in the navigation of a South Asian LGBTQ identity. LGBTQ persons and their families each face their own challenges during the development of an LGBTQ identity and then later in managing familial and community relationships.
Supporting both is essential for the healthy development and lived experiences of the LGBTQ identity.

With support from Parents and Families of the LGBTQ (PFLAG) community, support groups providing safe, respectful, and confidential spaces for exploring identity development and lived experiences are now available. These support groups provide mutual peer support where individuals participate, or simply just even listen, to their personal comfort level.

Support groups open to LGBTQ persons, their families and allies.
An individual meeting prior to attending a meeting can be arranged on request.
An alternative meeting can be arranged on request for those parents of LGBTQ children preferring to meet separately.
These meetings will provide a safe and confidential place for families to discuss their concerns and challenges,  obtain knowledge to gain a better understanding, and obtain and offer mutual support. All family members  are welcome.

Date: Second Saturday of every month
Time: 2pm – 4pm. First half hour is social, meeting begins at 2.30pm.

Contact: Please contact Surinder Bal at southasianpflagatl@gmail.com for location of meetings and for further information.
All communication via email is strictly confidential. We look forward to meeting you.​
