As of 2022, the Queer South Asian Women's Network offers in-person programming in addition to our virtual spaces. We value bringing our community together for picnics, parties, and more! We currently host events in Toronto, but will be expanding to Vancouver as of 2023. We will continue to expand across various locations based on popular request.

CHAI & CHILL SERIES

We host monthly virtual workshops for gender marginalized LGBTQ+ South Asian diaspora on the first Thursday of every month at 9PM (EST) / 8PM (CST) / 6PM (PST). 

Each month is uniquely themed and facilitated by a subject expert. Themes vary from creative workshops to speed friending! Workshops are announced at the end of each month on our website and Instagram page. The registration link will accompany each announcement post.

The workshops are hosted through Zoom.
