Tales of love, lust, and horror…
We love all the stories. Don’t we? A new decade has just started with new promises and hope. A new India is now ready to share stories that were once considered taboo. These stories need an ear. Helping facilitate this movement is a Mumbai based storytelling group ‘Storycellar‘.
A group of like-minded individuals dedicated to sharing stories and building a platform for stories for people from all over the world. The Storycellar team believes ‘Every Story Matters’, because they bridge barriers and foster connections.
Keeping their philosophy of inclusion in mind, Storycellar has curated — The Queer Stories, as a part of the Queer Azadi Mumbai Pride Month, 2020.
