Our Current and Past Donors

Our Vision

Sangama is an anti-sexist, anti-classist, democratic, and transparent organization. We believe in diversity and do not see all sexual minorities as a monolithic, uniform community. We recognise that they come from different class, caste, gender, religion, language, culture, ethnicity, sexual identity, sexual orientation, political backgrounds. Different people face different forms of marginalisation even among sexual minorities.


Sangama Vision Statement

Sangama recognises the need to work not only with sexual minorities but also with their family members, friends, co-workers and the society at large.

We look at the sexual rights movements as based on not only the discourse of sexual identity, orientation and gender identity but also discourses of human rights, sexual rights, gender equality, social justice, etc. We believe in an integrationist approach, i.e., to integrate non-homophobic hetero-sexuals and social activists in the movement for sexual rights. We also work with other social movements and believe in building alliances for a larger struggle for equality, justice, and freedom.
