The term "possibility model" was suggested by actress and trans activist Laverne Cox, who said she didn't want to be a role model, she preferred the term “possibility model”. So when Desi Rainbow Parents & Allies decided to feature conversations with LGBTQ+ people who are building relationships, families, communities, we called the program "Proud Possibilities." While we certainly believe the people featured are possibility models for the LGBTQ+ community, our purpose is to show parents and allies of Desi LGBTQ+ kids that there are many possibility models for our children's future.
Desi Rainbow is excited to bring you a Pride month Desi Diaspora discussion!
On June 15, 2022, join panel host Priya Arora, journalist and creator of Queering Desi, to talk to Desi Diaspora activists about what Pride means to them, and what our community needs to do to support the next generation of LGBTQ+ kids.
Meanwhile, watch our inspirational interviews from Proud Possibilities since 2020, all complied on our YouTube channel.
