Sangama (India)

http://sangama.org/node/10

Sangama is an anti-sexist, anti-classist, democratic and transparent organisation. We believe in diversity and do not see all sexuality minorities as a monolithic/uniform community. We recognise that they come from different class/caste/gender/religion/language/culture/ ethnicity/sexual identity/sexual orientation/ political backgrounds. Different people face different forms of marginalisation even among sexuality minorities. Sangama recognises the need to work not only with sexuality minorities but also their family members/friends/co-workers and the society at large. We look at the sexual rights movements as based on not only the discourse of sexual identity/orientation and gender identity but also on discourses of human rights, sexual rights, gender equality, social justice, etc. We believe in an integrationist approach, i.e., to integrate non-homophobic heterosexuals and social activists in the movement for sexual rights. We also work with other social movements and believe in building alliances for a larger struggle for equality, justice and freedom.’, ‘Sangama is an anti-sexist, anti-classist, democratic and transparent organisation.
