I’m a mother, first and foremost. I live for getting up with my babies in the morning, doing the little ones’ hair, and walking them to the bus stop. All …

Legally recognized marriages between same-sex couples will have a transformative impact not just on the lives of the couples themselves but also on our society. Achieving marriage equality at the federal level is a non-negotiable for both of us.
Vega and I engaged in a butch-femme exercise. But instead of the two being on opposite sides of the same continuum, we saw them as two separate continuums.
We got married at the Seattle Aquarium. We had 155 guests. Mala’s sister officiated, Mala’s mother performed an Aarati and Vega’s father read a poem he’d written for the occasion. We also managed to engage the services of a local pundit to perform the ceremony itself.
As a little child, I spent many hours in front of the mirror imitating my mom. Wearing her saree – big bindi – and then of course the earrings and …

Mala and Vega are huge icons for the Desi LGBT community in the U.S, but their early lives were similar to those of many south-Asian queer kids. Growing up in “typical” South Indian, Tamilian families in the U.S, they had incredibly painful childhoods.

We refuse to hold …

This is to inform everyone that there has been a significant development in the S.377 case in the Supreme Court today. All the final applications for interventions by parties interested in the Delhi High Court verdict came up before a bench comprising of Justices Singhvi and Ganguly. These included a few against the Delhi High Court verdict, but also for the first time, applications from civil society supporting it.
I guess I always knew I was different from other boys, I just don’t know why I felt different. My earliest crush on a guy was in my first year of high school I was 12. I remember thinking about this guy all the time and fantasizing about him when I got home after school and at night. I didn’t think too much of it back then, although I am pretty sure I thought there was something odd, this was partly because I knew that I couldn’t tell anyone and I didn’t, particularly not my parents.
Rickshaw service to and fro the schools with a bunch of uniformed children was his only occupation. A skin tone closer to Amma’s ‘Pulikkachal’, oil dripping across the sweaty skin, …
I’m still a Valentine’s cynic. And I hope my girlfriend doesn’t hate me for it. But I think it’s pointless to designate one consumerist day to your loved ones, whether they are romantic interests or your platonic nearest and dearest. Why not tell them how much they mean to you every day?
It is Wedding season on Gaysi! (Miss Zero’s “Gaysi Wedding Dreams” & “My Dream : Super Lesbian Wedding”). Apparently this is also the season of TamBrahms! (Shri’s “Aththai” & Rashmi’s “Am I a Queer TamBrahm?”).
