Our Story

Raahi: A Journey Towards Dignity is a Karnataka-based organisation concentrating our efforts in two districts, namely Bengaluru Urban and Bengaluru Rural. Our work caters to the needs of persons marginalised on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation, with special focus on persons assigned female gender at birth. 


Raahi is a public charitable non-profit trust that was co-founded on 13th August, 2018 by nine people from a range of socio-political backgrounds who shared the belief that supporting persons from marginalised sexualities and gender identities in times of crisis ought to be carried out in a streamlined and systematic manner. Raahi is also a product of years of collective and collaborative politics, action and strategic intervention developed by countless individuals and groups who worked tirelessly to sustain the gender and sexuality movement in India.
