Lakshman Kalasapudi, Clip 2: South Asian Lesbian and Gay Association
Description: The South Asian Lesbian and Gay Association, commonly known as SALGA, is a volunteer community group for South Asian "sexual minorities" that live in Queens. SALGA provides a peer, mental health support group once a month, political actions, and assistance to community members needing asylum, and social and economic support. It is a place where Queens South Asians can feel safe and validated. It is a place to express both identities together – gay and South Asian - and not bifurcate the two identities. Lakshman attended his first SALGA support group after coming out in 10th grade.
