Our TransHearts goes to America!

Our TRANSHEARTS artworks go to America!

Indivisible Conejo LGBTQ+ decided to feature TransHearts from Sahodari Foundation at the very first Conejo Valley Pride in Thousand Oaks Civic Art Plaza in Southern California.

This event was attended by close to 2000 folks. The vibrant colors and exquisite paints from Dr. Kalki Subramaniam and the trans community drew a lot of crowd to the Indivisible Conejo’s booth.

Most of the attendees were amazed at the talent and creativity by the trans community from Southern India. Their heartwarming experience from the “Walls of kindness”project touched the hearts of many who attended. They wrote appreciate notes to show their support and thanking Sahodari for such talent, visibility and creativity.

Our gratitude and thanks to Jon Cummings for sponsoring us the space and our very own sister and Ambassador for Sahodari Foundation Celia Sandhya Daniels and all the coordination for this show.
