As part of the Mumbai Pride Week, Kashish presents Q'nema on 22nd January at TISS, Mumbai.
Colours of India through the eyes of a dancer...
It's the first party of 2012...from the biggest and the best LGBT party organisers... "BIRDCAGE". A fund raiser for the spirit of LGBT MUMBAI for QAM 2012.
On 15th January, QAM hosted its first Queer Games. Here is a personal account of one the Queer Games participant, Deep. "Light of hope at the end of the tunnel"…a statement strong enough to confirm we are on the right track. Good show guys!
Block the week people!
Its Pride Friday and we're kicking up Pride Week - You and me are going to have a better time than most people dream of, so let's paint the night in your favorite color!
This time we party for a cause, to raise funds for Mumbai Pride 2012. Mother of all queer events is back, bigger and better than ever, Queer Azaadi Mumbai’s Pride walk on 28th January 2012. This year promises to have almost of a dozen pre-pride events to be held all over the city during the pride week (21st-28th January 2012). And in order to help realize all these events, Gossip is holding a fundraiser!
We’re giving you an opportunity to star in your very own production.
In the year of the Olympics, QAM brings you our lil queer version of the Games, right here to Mumbai! Our little twist, is more about having fun, letting our hair down and proving our athletic prowess! (kidding about the last part).
So how was the last year, peeps? Here at Gaysi we've had a super busy one. We had our usual posts about Events, Opinions, Fiction and of course... cue scary music (or drum rolls, as you please)... PODCASTS! As usual, we were not free of controversy. But we live, we learn and hopefully, we have fun along the ride.
This Sunday, come down to The Humsafar Trust, Vakola for an evening of unadulterated fun, at Yaariyan's Bombay Dost Sunday High - Karaoke Night.
Do support De Taali again by attending our Gig to fight for Hijras who deserve as many opportunities as you and me.
The entries need to reflect the lives of the LGBTHIQ.
This year, bring in the New Year at one of GB’s most popular party venues – at a very affordable price of Rs 1,600, of which Rs 100 will go towards organising Mumbai’s Queer Azaadi Pride March happening in January 2012.
Come on my queer,
Get in gear.
Gay prides just a month away,
Through the streets we want to play.
There’s no such thing as a free lunch,
Doesn’t mean you need to get your panties in a bunch.
Corporate Donations for Pride Festivities?
Yes...it will lead to bigger social impact
Don't care where the money comes from..
Pride, what bullocks!
Queer Azadi Mumbai March is scheduled for Saturday, 28th January 2012 and the pride week is to be celebrated from 21st January – 28th January.
The Bangalore Pride week was kickstarted on the 19th of November with a Cricket match at Hombegowda Grounds. It wasn’t advertised as much as the other events, hence the turn out wasn’t great. One of the organizers got on the mic and announced "We are gays, lesbians, hijras, kothis, transgenders... we are having a friendly cricket match today as part of pride, will you celebrate with us and play our game?” A bunch of guys who were hanging around on the grounds stayed to play.
The Q Fest Pune is held in December each year and provides a platform for Queer expressions in film, art, photography and theater.
This year the festival will screen 18 films that take a critical and empathetic look at several human rights issues – from religious fundamentalism, communal violence, political authoritarianism, war crimes, homophobia, surrogacy, migrant rehabilitation, women empowerment, corruption and poverty.
