Recently, we were contacted by someone from a Men’s Magazine that shall not be named but I can tell you that their name begins with an ‘F’, ends with an ‘M’ and has a middle initial of ‘H’. We were asked if Gaysi would be willing to answer a ‘witty questionnaire on lesbian sex’. Witty? Warning bells! But you know how we have a penchany for attracting these sorts.

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.

A while ago there was the gay Pakistani couple in New Zealand with family issues, but there doesn’t seem to have been too much drama going on in our world as of late. Trust that I’m pleased, but I find that hard to believe, so let me know if I’m missing any important news!

What would you do if you witnessed a parent berating their child in public for being gay?
The media, especially gay media abroad, have jumped on the story. ‘Lesbian Newlyweds Flee Honor Killing Threats’ makes for good headlines. It has all the ingredients of a masala story.

This movie discusses the issue of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in India after the repeal of the 377 verdict through the eyes of three protagonists joining the 1 year celebration in Mumbai.
The treatment of the subject has been carried out in a fairly respectful fashion so far … heartening that it isn’t satire ( Apart from the odd snickering on the lines of “Thats why he runs from his wife!!” …but heck. That does happen. Both snickering and running from the wife. )

Rashmi mentioned to me that a recent episode of Outsourced was particularly troubling, so after I watched it we decided to each write about it. Read Rashmi’s take on the specific episode in her article “Outsourced, I love you no more!” I suppose I have something more along the lines of “Outsourced, I never really loved you”.
Thousands of books have been written on Mahatma Gandhi with each new one claiming to have discovered an unknown facet of his eventful life. When reviews of Pulitzer prize winner Joseph Lelyveld’s “Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India” hit the newspapers in England and US claiming that the book says Gandhi was a bisexual and had a German-Jewish bodybuilder lover in Hermann Kallenbach it created immediate sensation.
