In the Fall of 2012, while on a Fulbright-mtvU Fellowship, American filmmaker and PhD student Jeff Roy came to Mumbai to film a documentary on music, dance, and performance art expressions from within the city’s LGBTQ and Hijra communities. Combining interviews and performances from established and emerging performers in contemporary and folk traditions, the films that Roy will share with us show how the fundamental practice of music and dance helps to empower and strengthen individual LGBTQ voices as they navigate tradition and modernity in Mumbai’s urban landscape.
