“Vikruti evam prakruthi�(what seems unnatural is also natural), the beautiful verse from Rig Veda, in queer sense describes srishti in a single line. Srishti is the first LGBTQ group designed to target specifically to the problems of queer people in non-metro cities of Tamilnadu like Coimbatore and Madurai. Srishti aims to eliminate the homogenization of the queer community arising from the dualism -straight/queer and works to educate people about the various diversities within the queer community itself, so that people gain more understanding of the queer community which would reduce the severity of social discrimination. the pattern of social discrimination in any form is of the hotspot of Srishti to work to reduce its severity so that it would vanish further and helps to counsel the peer queer friends, so that they can change themselves from the position of victim of the social discrimination to the position of fighting against those discrimination. Srishti is against the commercialization aspects of queer people in any aspects and helps in constructing the need of the self-respect for the queer people. Srishti is always multidisciplinary and via the Srishti science group Srishti aims to build the human resources of alternate sexualities and their representation through activities like expeditions, trekking etc. also such an initiative is of first of its kind in any LGBTQ group in India. Science club further aims to approach the alternate sexualities from a scientific perspective and impart people with the scientific knowledge of queer community so that the widespread idea of homosexuality is unnatural and a disease vanishes from the mentality of people. The peculiar aspect of srishti is that, it has separate group for genderqueer people as srishti genderqueer. The diversity of genderqueer like agender ,pangender ,bigender,trigender,androgynous etc is even unaware within the mainstream queer community itself, while srishti has a separate group for genderqueer to have a better representation of the problems of genderqueer.


Srishti is a student Group & not an NGO or CBO & do not accept corporate sponsors, all events of Srishti is organized by volunteer ship & individual donations, all accounts of Srishti is open to our volunteers.
