Desi Queer Byte : Gaysi Family (Promotional Video)

Our very first promotional video and yes we are jubilant and ecstatically excited.

Our very first promotional video and yes we are jubilant and ecstatically excited. And what makes its release even more special is that we managed to finish it just in time for the 4th year anniversary of the reading down of IPC 377 by the Delhi High Court.

Giving credit where it’s due:

Sherlock Homo, one of our core team members is solely responsible for this brilliant effort. From the concept to the storyboard, from the props to the actual shooting of the video and most importantly, the soundtrack. It took her a couple of Sundays, some sleepless nights and skipping her best friend’s birthday.

Though I take full credit for the continuous nagging, and thereby ensuring that the mission is completed in timely fashion.

So there you have it; we may be broke but we are smart enough to recruit supremely talented Gaysis.

Do give us your feedback, as it will only help us in nagging Sherlock with greater sincerity.

And before I signoff, a special thank you to Humsafar Trust for maintaining & providing us the amazing archive of the Indian Queer movement over the years.
