Parivar cultivates a community of light, love, and acceptance that enables successful execution of our mission, enhances our reputation as a primary organization for Transgender economic justice, social inclusion, and health care equity, and is an engaging leader for Queer Trans Immigration equity, led by South Asian Transgender Leaders.
We have a simple tagline: “Our South Asian Queer Trans Family.” Reclaiming spaces beyond cisness, Parivar was brought together as a social collective by individuals and community leaders to build the greatest and biggest family together. Parivar was created as a strategically claimed social platform, and uplifts South Asian Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (GNC) individuals and welcomes all queer, gay, lesbian, intersex, bisexual, and allies. As the front door for the greater South Asian Queer Diaspora, ParivarBayArea focuses on our local California community with a global mindset.
