Recently, a lot was said on Gaysi with regards to the latest podcast (yes – the indecent one!) and I sat quietly observing the motion, like an idiot. Disgust expressed, threats given, apology expected, “heartfelt” apology given and yet people were lashing out. Some stood for us; some refrained from making any comments while others chose to walk away…
I’d like to believe that as queers, we’re less stressed about sexual infidelity than straight people, since the threat of reproduction and offspring is relatively low. (Not counting select orgies where both sexes are present and you wake up the next morning wondering who put what inside you, or where you went and put yours the previous night.)
First of all, before I say anything else, I want to apologise. Unconditionally. Unequivocally.
First things first.
I love Team Gaysi. I love MJ. I admire her commitment and dedication.
Nothing I write here is a personal attack. Infact, I have a go-ahead from…
Long distance relationships are hard. People have told me that before. But fuck, I never knew how hard till a few months back. Great conversations and intellectual stimulation keep you going. But there’s only so far you can use those two to prod your relationship along. But what comes after you’ve pushed it as far as it can go?
Let me make this clear. This is not to express any form of hatred towards men. I don’t hate you. This is just a quick guide to things you should never say to your lesbian friends or any lesbian. NEVER.
Just when you thought we were BAD ... We (MJ) get BADDER !
Now that you have been listening to our podcasts for a while, you may notice a pattern...
Queer Tasveer, Summer 2011 Photo contest results are here!
"I did not know Gaurav Gopalan personally. But after attending his vigil on Sunday night at Dupoint, I wish I had." says Anita Balan.

Thats right peeps, we're back ! With a brand new podcast ! And this time... Its positively scandalous...*rawwwr*
Broom and MJ found that among the desi lesbian community, there was need for a space where they could ‘come out’, even if it meant only to themselves.
Friends & family of Gaurav Gopalan as well as politicians and LGBT community activists gathered in Dupont Circle Sunday night for a candlelight vigil in memory of Gopalan, who was killed in Columbia Heights earlier this month. Shiva Subbaraman shares her memories and pays tribute to Gaurav.
So this fabulous Sunday morning while we were prepping ourselves for another Gaysi Podcast, I noticed some kind of chaos on multiple community pages on Facebook. A deeper look and this story unfolded- Mumbai city. Queer Party. Rented Bungalow in the suburbs. Police raid. 133 men detained. Media exposé. A case of “indecent behavior” filed.
US based Maharashtrian couple Sameer and Amit share their story in this edition of Jab We Met. They are together for seven years, got married a year ago, in an elaborate Indian wedding and now lead a happy and fulfilled life in the Midwest.
So what does one do when you go out on a date with someone special and new in your life? Am sure you guys can think of plenty naughty things to do with your Gaysi Girl’s but as far as the old school me goes, I like the build up of getting to know someone romantically to be slow and subtle.
The email read: “Do you want to come play in the woods? There'll be lots of cute guys...” It was a Radical Faerie gathering at Breitnebush Springs in Oregon. My immediate response was: No. No way. I don't do that sort of thing. And I paused just as I was about to move on to the next email, and my second thoughts said: What are you afraid of?
Born with three nipples, she was raised like a man. She defied gender roles and challenged the sexist notions of the world. She was fearless, powerful and strong until... she met him.
If you’re a veteran lesbian, chances are you’ve been in at least one long term relationship with a girl. You may have noticed that it was scary and difficult. However, if you are new to the scene and curious about the future, here is a list of things you can expect to find yourself experiencing once you trap the lady love of your life.
I grew up feeling very uncomfortable about my breast. According to me they were not supposed to grow. I spent years wearing bra sizes way too small for me because all I wanted was for them to vanish.
