Our Vision
A society free of gender-sexuality-based discriminations, where rights of the sexual minorities will be ensured.
Our Mission
To address the issues of gender-sexually marginalized women and female to male transpersons in society and to broaden the struggle for social equality and rights within the nation-state and beyond.
Our Ideology
To problematize the existing idea of a gender-sexual 'mainstream' as opposed to a 'margin' and to challenge any form of ghettoization of the margins.
Our Politics
To go beyond identity-based politics to a politics of standpoint; to provide a platform irrespective of gender and sexual orientation to persons who question the organized workings of homophobia, heterosexism, and both hetero and homo-normativity.

someone in some future time will think of us"
