We had our first date at a restaurant, we stayed there and talked until they had to kick us out because they were closing.
Since then our relationship has grown and is still going strong. Almost one year ago, my Fiancé(Jay) and I found each other on Dil Mil. At first I wasn’t sure how the long distance was going to work especially because I have school every other weekend along with full time job.
Queer and Trans South Asians are an incredibly vibrant set of communities often underrepresented within the landscape of South Asian communities.
There is a rich history of community organizing by Queer and Trans South Asians, with (a radical cultural festival held in Toronto in the 1990s) as one clear example of this social justice work.
We talked through Dil Mil for a month before we finally decided to meet each other on Memorial day last year.
