A new UK-based website for Asian and Arab LGBT communities and their friends has been launched. offers content for both men and women and includes features, articles, blogs, message boards, community news and listings.

The site aims to fill the current void in the online word for people from the Asian and Arab LGBT communities by providing an up-to-date, safe environment for users to interact, and get information.

“I chose the name salaam because it is a word of greetings, peace and love that is shared by many peoples of Middle Eastern and Asian heritage,” says Simran,’s founder and coordinator, adding that, “I wanted to bring together these different, inter-connected communities.”

“ is the first fully interactive, non-religious based UK website for Asian and Arab LGBTs. We needed a space that isn’t just about dating and sex. I wanted to create an environment where we could share experiences and unite against the Islamophobia and racism that creeps its way into the LGBT community,” said Simran. intends becoming the first place to visit for Arab and Asian people seeking support and advice around their sexuality, health and social issues…and it’s free.
