Discussing Racism and Discrimination in Club Scene (Gin Event)

Hello beautiful people,

I hope you’re all well and keeping safe during these crazy times.

As you know this is a start-and-stop project, it all depends on how many participants we get.

But I’m going to be blogging more, at least a couple of times a week.

Just to reconnect with all of you and share our mission of sharing stories of LGBTQIA+ South Asians, whether they are out or now.

Updates?

I got plenty, but don’t want to overwhelm you.

Our Twitter has been suspended, I don’t know why. The only explanation I can give, maybe Twitter’s algorithm spotted some queer content and thought it was something sinister.

I’m hoping to get it back, but we still got our Instagram.

I would like to draw your attention to an important GIN meet-up, this Saturday, to discuss racism and discrimination you’ve ever faced in clubs.

There’s some “usual suspects” on the scene that discriminates against the Queer POC community, rather than trying to cultivate an inclusive and thriving community.

In 2017, we launched “Denied for being POC” where we collected a few stories, it was inspired by an incident I personally witnessed, while out with my partner and her colleagues.

It will be nice to engage with you all again from time to time. Please feel free to email me your charity if you’re looking for one-off donations of any kind.

Together we are forever (RIP Naz)

I am in love. I am in love with my fiancé, my soulmate, my everything.
I will follow him to the ends of the earth.
I will stay strong for him.
To try and fix what is wrong.
To honour his memory.
Rest in peace my darling.
Naz I love you. We will meet again.
Together we are forever xxxx
