Queerythm is a registered community based organization located in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala for addressing the issues of LGBTIQ community. The organization has a wide reach in Kerala with a strength of more than thirty volunteer members for assistance and support to persons undergoing trauma and discrimination. Queerythm has the potential of academicians, scholars and professionals, large input in the form of books and other referential documents, active and vibrant volunteers and resource persons at hand to accomplish its goals. Some of the primary goals of Queerythm are as follows: To promote social, economic, political, educational and cultural development of sexual and gender minorities and PLHA (People Living with HIV Aids), to document, publish and disseminate information on issues related to sexual and gender minorities and PLHA, and to research on issues related to sexual and gender minorities, PLHA, sexuality, sex education, gender and development. Queerythm is the proud host for IDAHOT events in Kerala. We also organise events for bringing our queer talents and motivate them towards greater heights such as QTalk (Queer Talk), QDebate (Queer Talk), Rang ( Kerala’s first lgbtiq YouTube channel), India’s first ever lgbtiq 24*7 Helpline and so on.
Queerythm is proud to organise the second edition of LGBTIQ pride walk in Thiruvananthapuram on March 17, 2019, for demonstration of queer rights and creating visibility to the queer community. We plan to conduct this to create better awareness to people about the queer livings and to create social acceptance. With strike down of 377, queer individuals are slowly coming out of closet and this pride would served as the best platform for them to remove their fear, create self acceptance factors and mingle with fellow people. We have also planned for cultural events to bring queer talents on stage and some theatre arts program to develop artistic qualities in them. We require your immense support for making this cause, a success. Help us, to serve ourselves better.
