2 Great Personalities [Our World This Week]

This week we will showcase interviews with 2 gaysi personalities. The first one is the author of the popular book “Quarantine”. [Link ] The Indian diaspora is quite aware of the confused identities we all carry while trying to balance the East and the West in us. Add to this a layer of Queerness and you have a full fledged Bollywood film on the making. Here, Rahul talks about how his dilemma and what shaped his book.

The next one  is a video interview with Rosanna Flamer-Caldera who is the executive Director of Equal Ground.  Here she talks about what it means to be Queer in Sri Lanka.[Link] This is the first time I have come across a LGBT person from Sri Lanka and it gives me immense pride that people are coming out, fighting for their rights where they live at and being proud about themselves.

Viva La Diversity!

About the author

Rashmi

Rashmi grew up in India and now she enjoys her time living in one of the queerest places in the world. She started transitioning a while back and is gradually coming out to people she thinks are cool enough for her. She enjoys discussing any topic under the sun and has an opinion about anything and everything. She thinks of herself as someone who can only hold intelligent conversations with people, when in reality she is totally insane and crazy, not to mention she has been highly hormonal recently. *GRIN*
