The AOI List of Queer Support Resources Of All Kinds

Are you a queer person looking for back-up and wondering where to find it? This back-up could be in any form. Perhaps what you need is expertise: a good doctor, lawyer, or therapist. Maybe what you’re looking for is community: a place to meet new people and make friends, or find love. Or maybe you’re looking for some cultural comfort: some nice reading material that discusses issues close to your heart, films that mirror your desires.

Or maybe you know someone else who’s looking for these things?

Here’s a list of resources from across India, online and offline, that you (or someone you know) might find helpful. And if you’d like to help us update it or add to it, do write to us at agentsofishq@gmail.com.
