Queer Mythology: Maharaja Virata And Brihannala

The core of gender and sexual identity is in the power of self-identification.

How important is using the right labels, pronouns and words? Quite important, we say. The core of gender and sexual identity is in the power of self-identification. Something which must be respected, understood and supported as part of the person who grows in and with the society around them. We bring to you, as part of our ongoing Mythology series, the story of King Virata and Brihannala. A story of acceptance, love and beauty, illustrated by Adrija Ghosh that tells the society of today, that kindness is indeed, the greatest virtue.
