Gender & Sexuality
We are a Queer Collective based in Kota Kinabalu. A social and networking platform created for and by the local Sabahan LGBTQIA+ community.
GSAKK focuses on three areas
SOCIAL - SUPPORT - ACTIVISM
We run monthly gatherings for members of the community to hang out, socialize and network with each other. Our social gathering varies monthly ranging from board games night, dinner parties, karaoke, movies and more.
We are constantly in the works to create queer-affirming spaces where we can talk about issues we face within the community and to help each other out with our efforts and capacity.
Our activism focuses on education by providing trainings and workshops while establishing and maintaining relationships in matters of legal advice, halfway homes and crisis response in Kota Kinabalu and other districts in Sabah.
Gender & Sexuality Alliance Kota Kinabalu was founded in May 2019. It started with a few passionate queer folks discussing queer issues while hanging out at a cafe when they realised that there were no existing queer collective in their hometown.
A few months on, we invited as many queer folks and allies we know of and hosted our first social gathering which was filled with laughter, food, movie and discussions. The event went successfully which resulted in the birth of GSAKK.
We are a queer collective that is for everyone who wants to be a part of an inclusive and diverse community. We welcome all people of different backgrounds and identities regardless of gender, sexuality or status.
