Satrang and South Asian Network collaboratively conducted the first ever needs assessment of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer and Questioning (LGBTIQ) South Asian community in Southern California (Los Angeles and Orange Counties). South Asians are comprised of, among others, Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans, Nepalis, Maldivians, Bhutanese, Afghanis; Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains and Buddhists; speakers of dozens of different South Asian languages; and multiple generations of immigrants that make up the diaspora.

The goal of the Southern California South Asian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, and Questioning (SA LGBTIQ) Needs Assessment project was to determine the most critical unmet needs for the health and well-being of SA LGBTIQ individuals. Both sponsoring organizations have been engaged in internal capacity building to develop programs that foster community organizing and advance social justice for LGBTIQ communities. However, before implementing specific programs targeting this population, the organizations sought to find out where the greatest needs lie in order to most effectively and responsively work with the community.
