What does it mean to be both queer and single in a society where heteronorms are so pervasive? This may entail the exclusion of unpartnered or non-conventionally partnered LBTQ persons within and/or outside our communities.

Sayoni is excited to present to you a dialogue on queer singlehood for LBTQ persons. Join our eclectic mix of panelists this Valentine's Day, as we carve out not just an inclusive, but also an intimate space, for commiserating on some intersectional challenges (with respect to race, gender variance, age, disability, among others) that we may have to contend with while navigating the LBTQ dating scene.

More crucially, we seek to reinvent the significance of Valentine’s Day by discussing some alternative modes of organising relationships beyond compulsory monogamous coupledom. Is monogamous coupledom truly the only “end goal” of meaningful relationships? We hope to forge solidarities among single and not-so-single individuals within the community by exploring relation/kinship models that are not constrained by biological ties. Some of these might include ‘families of choice’ and queer platonic friendships that would avoid over-privileging romantic-sexual bonds between two people.

Tickets are required for admission. Registration starts at 6.30pm. Please allow around 5-10 minutes for the registration process.
