IRQO was founded the summer of 2006 with the aim of familiarizing the Iranian society with sexual diversity issues and working toward the decriminalization of homosexuality. Other goals include serving the Iranian queer community residing in Canada, and educating the larger Iranian-Canadian communities on issues of inclusion and diversity.
