THE ALTERNATIVE SEXUALITIES HEALTH RESEARCH ALLIANCE
Because everyone deserves quality healthcare
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 who are involved in alternative sexualities.
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.

Help us reduce stigma and better the health of kink interested individuals
TASHRA began in 2012 out of a need to expand knowledge about those who are erotically diverse, such as kinky people, BDSM practitioners and those with sexual interests that are out of the mainstream.
