Jeff Roy On Talking Dirty, “Gaysi” Style

Through Dirty Talk, Gaysi is trying to break the open-mic mold by providing a platform for artists from backgrounds of all kinds to deconstruct and redefine the status quo of acceptability.

All I can say is that we are pretty awesome and the rest is pretty easy. Er…okay fine, on a not so lighter note the fact is Dirty Talk has been a learning curve not just for us, the Gaysi Team but for everyone who has been a part of it. It is indeed a wonderful feeling to watch, the very loved space that we have created online over the years, take a form offline.

And yes, personally getting to know someone as creatively amazing as Jeff Roy is the perfect icing on the cake.

In Mumbai, open-mic events come few and far between. Over the years, they have also been associated with the literary scene and/or attached to traditional feminist activism, more akin to, say, an episode of Portlandia, as Sherlock insinuates. Through Dirty Talk, Gaysi is trying to break the open-mic mold by providing a platform for artists from backgrounds of all kinds to deconstruct and redefine the status quo of acceptability. Unapologetically raunchy, subversive, and offbeat, the Gaysi girls encourage “Dirty Talk-wallas” to let down their hair and say what they want to say, “so long as they don’t offend anyone.”
