5 Foot 11 inch something. Runner’s legs, glowing skin, hair from below the knees till the ankle, brushing down like a slim cover against the occasional nip in the tropical city. Calf muscles to letch at. Toes well-shaped, the arch of the foot perfect, a dancer’s feet. Clean, clipped, cured toe-nails. Feet with the occasional hard-sole of a man who has tread the hard earth to keep fit, yet lick-a-licious. Like abso-fucking-lutely lick-able. Nah, too much porn. Focus. Husband material.
Among the crowd of 400 odd diwali issues that flood the market every year covering diverse topics, is ‘Purushspandana’, brought out by Men Against Violence and Abuse (MAVA), which has …
Though most of the Hindu festivals are largely religious, we do pretty much the same thing like any other culture in the world – we congregate, cook food, eat them …
It's been almost two years since I came onto the Lezzie scene. I've met many, dated many and gotten to know a lot of women. Some have been phenomenal. Some you discover along the way. Some allow you the power to be yourself and some to bloom. Some are Hi. Some are so strictly bye! My must have list still holds good.
It was after her fifteenth birthday that she realised there was something a little different about her. All her friends seemed to have changed – they dressed better, seemed more …
The best kind of books are the ones that make you want to write. The Reward by R.Singh does just that.
It starts off interestingly as the writer uses rich imagery to paint vivid pictures of his childhood. The writing here creates such strong impressions, that I shared his nostalgia, when he recollects his childhood memories towards the end of his life. It momentarily made me pine for some of my own childhood... a phase of my life that I like to think about, very little.
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.
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?
Just when you thought we were BAD ... We (MJ) get BADDER !

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.
That day the venue was visited or called by (a) the excise department, (b) the entertainment tax department, (c) the guys in charge of the public performing license (for the DJ music) and (d) a group of plainclothes guys, from which part of the police is unclear, who walked up to the manager and asked if there was a gay party (chakke log ka party) there that night, and when the manager said yes, he was told he better cancel it or there would be trouble.
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.

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.
