As the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic rages across India, the LGBTQ+ community faces unique challenges. Sex workers have lost their daily wages, trans people have no official ID for government schemes, and those in the closet living with their parents have lost all forms of physical safe spaces.
Pink List India is collaborating with Youth Feed India and Helping Hands Charitable Trust to support grassroots organisations in delivering urgent food relief to queer and trans persons all over India. In the first phase, the Pride Fundraiser aims at raising funds, procuring, and distributing emergency ration kits to vulnerable members of the LGBTQ+ community in 12 cities across 8 states.
This includes trans persons who rely on begging or sex work to earn daily wages, folk artists who have lost opportunities to perform amidst lockdown, people living with HIV who are particularly immunocompromised, and children who have lost support systems and networks of care during or before the pandemic.
Each ration kit costs INR 600 and contains essential food supplies — rice, dal, aata, salt, sugar, tea, spices — intended to last a group of four individuals for up to two weeks. The kits will be locally sourced and distributed by grassroots organisations featured on PINK LIST's page to ensure that relief reaches those who need it most in the quickest ways possible.
