Priyam Collective is a powerful platform of diverse, yet interconnected voices. The collective is one of the pioneers in the Tamil-speaking regions of the country. Priyam in Tamil has multiple meanings, such as affection, love, fondness, and friendship. The equivalent of Priyam in many other South Asian languages, including Sinhala, holds similar meanings. Priyam comes as the closest namesake of a dear queer feminist comrade, Priya Thangarajah. Her legacy, along with many other comrades’ , will continue to guide and strengthen us.
