Today's conversation is with Luka and Esther of SQSH, an organization that provides free, confidential, and identity-affirming emotional support and resource referrals, by and for the St. Louis LGBTQIA+ community.

Luka (they/them), a queer non-binary Singaporean immigrant, founded the St. Louis Queer+ Support Helpline using a $5,000 grant and their prior experience working on a sexual assault helpline and volunteering at The Trevor Project. Born and raised in Singapore, a highly homophobic and transphobic country, Luka hopes to be able to immigrate to the United States.
