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.
