Our Stories


Desi Rainbow is proud to present Our Stories, a series of short films we released at the end of 2021 featuring the parents of Desi Rainbow Parents & Allies. 

Desi Rainbow was founded by a parent of an LGBTQIA+ child, and continues to recruit, support and train parents to lead as allies and activists within the South Asian community. We share our stories and journey so that other families can listen, learn, and know that they are not alone.
