Sahodaran means brother in Tamil, and that sense of kinship is exactly what we strive to be for Tamil Naduís LGBTIQ community. Since our inception in 1998 we have
expanded our outreach from MSM to all LGBTIQ. Today we seek to empower all sexual minorities to reach their full potential by providing a safe haven of community
support, outreach, and activism. Our mission is to create a world that is safe for all people, regardless of orientation, a world without fear of violence or stigma.
Sahodaran is the first CBO (community based organization) of its kind in Southern India, and one of the first in all of India, run by LGBTIQ for LGBTIQ.
