Trikone is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people of South Asian descent. Founded in 1986 in the San Francisco Bay Area, Trikone is the first group of its kind in the world. South Asians affiliated with Trikone trace their ethnicities to one of the following places: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Pakistan, SriLanka, and Tibet.
Trikone offers a supportive, empowering and non-judgmental environment, where LGBT South Asians can meet, make connections and proudly promote awareness and acceptance of their sexuality in society.
Trikone works toward the following goals:
1) bring people of South Asian heritage together
2) promote awareness, visibility and cultural and legal acceptance of people with alternative sexual orientations and gender identities
3) help 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, our website, conferences, cultural nights, film festivals, dances, pride celebrations, and a host of other collaborative programming, Trikone has worked hard to nurture and empower the LGBT South Asian community in the Bay Area and across the globe.
