Why be part of SinQSA
If you believe in what we believe, you may wish to join our group. We will share resources and ideas on how to improve our community and make it inclusive and free of discrimination based on gender identity and sexuality.
SinQSA is about appreciating and celebrating diversity, which are more than just tolerance. What sustains diversity is continuous communication and meaningful exchanges.
Founding members of SinQSA
Jean is a happy minority that believes equality is for all. Hoping to lead a not-so-normal life, she spends her time walking her dog, eating cereals and reading. An activist for the last 10 years, she is also part of People Like Us and Sayoni.
Sam is a happily married man who aims to lead a debt-free life. He feels SinQSA is meaningful for straight people who feel they do not belong to part of a majority which perceives itself as homogeneous in values and beliefs. There is diversity even within a community.
Jennifer is a married feminist who believes the pen is mightier than the sword, action speaks louder than words and the time is always right to do what is right.
