Mumbai’s Queer Azadi : A No-Show

Cutting to the scene at Azad Maidan, honestly can’t say much...on second thoughts might as well get one of the journos covering the event to write this damn post ...since they were the ones hogging the attention of those in-charge and the most sought after.

I wanted to share this article that appeared in a daily newspaper recently that shares the ordeal of the countless Queer couples who are tackling their fight against society – …

Naz Celebrations, New Delhi

If there is one constitutional tenet that can be said to be underlying theme of the Indian Constitution, it is that of 'inclusiveness'.
