One of the biggest contributors in movements to bring about social change or to raise the collective consciousness is Art. It has been heartening to see that artists across all media have come together to show their support for the queer community and the need to strike down 377.
Take a look at this video which is simply titled, “Ishq ki Ijaazat” or the permission to love. There is no noise, but the background score of beautiful poetry. The portrayal of queers is beautiful; we are not a recent western import and the video aptly captures it. It delivers the visuals with such impact that you will see what the video is trying to subtly imply:
We have been living and loving in secrecy for decades. We are all around you. We are you.
