THE ALTERNATIVE SEXUALITIES HEALTH RESEARCH ALLIANCE
Shaping the future of erotic wellbeing
Welcome to TASHRA
TASHRA is a community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit with the important mission of improving the health and healthcare services of individuals

As champions of Kink competent healthcare, TASHRA supports empirical
research on this misunderstood and often pathologized sexual-minority.
Our vision is a world where fear of prejudice and discrimination does not
prevent people involved in a broad variety of sexual interests and activities from receiving caring, compassionate and competent care from physical and mental health professionals.
Won't you join us on this journey?
Help us reduce stigma and improve the health of kink interested individuals.
