Religion, Sexual Diversity and South Asian Youth Culture in the Greater Toronto Area

  • sexual and gender-based violence
  • negotiating queerness
  • dating and multiculturalism

What's your South Asia?  Do you identify as Sri Lankan, Bangladeshi, Kashmiri, Pakistani, or Indian? What about Canadian? What's your Islam, your Hinduism, your Buddhism, or your other? Who decides your communities, and what's important to each? When it comes to dating, how do you negotiate your gender and sexuality?

What's your normal?
