377 Case Developments

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.

Bollywood Hunks : When they were & When they were not

Unlike straight Desi men, Gaysi men are very picky! It is not easy for our Bollywood hunks to entice Gaysi men. And when they do, it is twice as hard to remain as the object of their attraction forever. Gaysi men save their loyalty for the divas (Rekha, Madhuri, Kajol and many others), not for the hunks. Hunks are disposable! One wrong move and they are out.

The Karela Story So Far…

Comparing the Queer scenario in India to that in the West is like comparing Karela (Bitter Gourd) to an Apple. Although both belong to the Edible Fruit family; Apple is what we are trained to like right from infancy...as for Karela, it’s shrugged aside for its ugly appearance, bitter taste and we couldn’t give a damn about all the goodness it contains.

Brand New Queer [Our World This Week]

While you lot are still singing the dying whispers of Auld Lang Syne [ Yes, that IS the 1788 Scottish song that plays in Sex and The City – The Movie. Yes, it even has a Gay Kiss ] So much has been happening in the world! So much! Time to play catch up…and that’s what we are here for – To nurse your hangover with Queer cheer.

Movie Review : Black Swan

On dreary winter nights, movies billed as ‘psychological thrillers’ are probably not the cheery fare I am looking for but having heard rave reviews about Black Swan, a few nights ago my sister and I ambled along into the theatre that was packed with people. I assure you - a packed theatre is a considerably rare occurrence out here. So after squeezing into 2 seats together padded by our parka jackets, we settled in for the ride. And my! What a ride it was!

“Bisexual”

Here’s the deal. Yes, I’m bisexual. I don’t like the word (I greatly prefer “queer”), but I’ll use it for simplicity’s sake here.

Cure For Just Rs.2100!

Dr.Dilbag's clinic has a team of "qualified" and "professional" Ayurvedic and Homeopathic doctors, who can cure homosexuality and other sexual problems. They have branches in Delhi and Amritsar (Gaysis from Delhi, please see what these guys are upto). Unfortunately doctors like Dilbag are not a rarity. Unethical medical practices, including conversion therapies, are prescribed and administered by several qualified doctors across India. These doctors let their personal belief systems and judgments get in their way of offering proper medical advice, and claim a person's sexual orientation can be changed.

Shahrukh, Ranbir in Brokeback Mountain Remake ?

Latest Bollywood buzz is that rising superstar, Ranbir Kapoor refused to work with Shahrukh khan, again! Kapoor kid says he is not desperate and is waiting for the "perfect script" to share screen space with King Khan. At Gaysi, we thought we would make an irresistible offer to the duo and while we are at it, also suggest some perfect remakes for our other Bollywood hunks.

An Outrageous Case of Homophobia!

Titled "Anbudan Andharangam", Dinamalar's weekly column claims to offers advice to readers on personal and intimate issues. Last Sunday, a young closeted gay man wrote a letter asking for help. He is very sure about his sexuality. His family is trying to arrange his marriage. He doesn't want to get married, but at the same time he is scared of coming out to them.

Crazy, Yes But Live Life, We Do!

Hats off to a mom who not only supported her kid's choice of dressing, rather cross dressing in a character he so enjoys but also standing up to other moms (I read it as 'showing the finger') and then blogging about it and thus recording a million hits in this process. She has 42000 comments and counting on this post and if only the elections were a little late, I am sure this would have been a decisive factor in this year's mid term elections!

Self Righteousness, Invasion of Privacy and A Threatening Hate Mail

A transwoman filing for a name change in her license was surprised to find hate mail along with her new license. Gee, How happy could one be? Apparently, the employee at the DMV office who processed her application found it perfect to teach her some morality based on Bible, while crossing the ethics and invading privacy, not to mention adhering to a concept of hate in the first place.

Dunno Y Bollywood Is Not O.K with Gays [Our World This Week]

Close on this article's heels comes news that the release of Dunno Y.... has been delayed because the charming chaps of the Bhartiya Yuva Morcha protested ( Are these guys new ? never heard of them ? must be an offshoot of an offshoot of an offshoot of the SS. wow.) Apparently, Homosexuality is against Indian culture. Ok folks! After Halloween - we all go back to being straight o.k ? Party time over. I kid - but you get the drift - There are people in this world who dare define Indian culture.

Gender Bender : The Stay-At-Home Dad

As much as some straight women complain about their husbands laziness to contribute towards their daily chores, which unfortunately I have seen in a few cases, I am seriously wondering if they will be comfortable in living a life with stay-at-home husbands. Will that parents and in-laws stop viewing it in a funny way but rather accept that their son/son-in-law is someone who wants to stay at home and raise a family while their daughter is the one who brings the dough. Will, they be proud to say that he is a stay at home dad by choice and they are comfortable under their skin to accept it as a possible and good choice.

LPGA : Born Female Only Please!

This LPGA tournament is being held at California - a state that has widespread anti-hate and anti-discrimination laws. So should any organization that openly discriminates be allowed to step in and do so?

Bombay Gymkhana : Discriminating Then, Discriminating Now

Earlier in April this year, Indian Trans activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, an invitee of the TEDx conference at Mumbai was asked to leave by the Management of the Bombay Gymkhana. All this happened while the conference was in session. As a sign of solidarity several people walked out. Dailies and tabloids wrote about this and everyone screamed at such a blatant act of discrimination. The President of the club just went into hiding, no questions answered. The Management had not expressed any regret; not even a melodramatic half-hearted apology was rendered. Not that it would have made any difference.

Suicides

I am watching and revolting at the latest media spectacle in the United States: Gaybie suicides. My first thought is “Great! The mainstream media finally woke up to a problem that has existed since before I was born. I don’t want to hear about it. Let me get back to my life.”

Gays And The Internet [Our World This Week]

There’s been much internet-related gay news this week. Some of it, the first of its kind, and some, downright sad. Eighteen year old Tyler Clementi, a freshman at Rutgers University, New Jersey, committed suicide is thought to have jumped off the George Washington bridge after a video of him being intimate with another man went viral on the internet.

Yet An Other Bullying

It is so tragic that a gay student has taken his life off due to bullying and invasion of privacy. Even after years of Mathew Sheppard and countless of registered and unregistered statistics (read suicides, murder... ), many countries and states do not yet have litigation to protect minorities. But isn't this a social problem? How much does it take for someone to respect others' privacy? Why makes assholes do things that are so destructive?
