About Us

A Few Words About Us

We strive to create a more inclusive space to express and be yourself.

There is a need to create a more inclusive space on campus for students who do not necessarily fit into conventional societal definitions of gender and sexuality. Thus, Satrangi, an LGBTQIA+ collective, was setup to address the many issues that those on the spectrum face.

We intend to not only create a safe space of tolerance, acceptance and inclusion, but also change mindsets and erase the stigma that plague gender and sexual minorities.

The Collective also organises events in IISER Pune Campus and outside the campus to raise awareness and empower those on the spectrum such as the LGBTQIA+ Pride Parade organised in collaboration with the Social Initiatives Department of Karavaan in October 2019.
