Who We Are
Empower. Support. Advocate. Lead. Celebrate.
Satrang serves the South Asian community by promoting awareness, acceptance, empowerment and safe spaces for people with all sexual and gender identities. Through social, educational, and advocacy related events,our mission is to enable community members to establish cultural visibility and take a stand against oppression and discrimination in all its forms.
What began as a small group of queer and trans* Desis meeting in someone’s living room to find community and support has grown and flourished over the years, to become the only South Asian organization serving the LGBTQ population in Southern California.
This nine minute video was shot in 2012 on the occasion of our 15th year Anniversary to tell the Satrang story and to capture what this organization has meant to so many.
