We are daughters and sons. We are cousins, aunts, and uncles. We are humans. We identify as Iranian and LGBTQ, and seek to create a space for deeper understanding between our nascent community and the traditions and cultures our grandparents and parents passed down to us. RAHA International is committed to help its members free themselves from cultural and social alienation and create a deeper space for understanding, and ultimately break down barriers preventing us from living as our authentic selves.
