A new year message from Sarbat

Dear members and friends

2017 has been an eventful year for many and we anticipate 2018 to offer opportunities just as profound.


Sarbat’s journey since 2007 has been just as eventful, starting as an online forum for LGBT Sikhs, the group now has a wide global reach which encompasses the diversity of the Sikh LGBT identity. You all have played an instrumental role in letting us be heard in changing legislation, holding politicians to account and informing the public debate on several issues relating to Sikhi. We now want you to take it a step further by representing LGBT Sikhs in surveys/forums/social media and by holding Sarbat events in your city.

The volunteer led Sarbat event in Leeds this January will be our first for 2018 and we hope that many of you who have been in touch will be running their own events in 2018. All we require is information on dates and venues – Do get in touch.

Sarbat has and will continue to put equality for us all as the cornerstone to our shared Sikh identity. We are encouraged that the Sikh community is supportive of our presence and things are moving in the right direction slowly but steadily.

We wish you a very happy and prosperous new year and hope that you are part of Sarbat’s future.


Issued on behalf of Sarbat
