Burning Dry

Its burning and bleeding dry So near, yet so farfetched the cry. Bantering, whom to blame Helplessly watching the flame In the name of Saffron and Green Hues of Rainbow in between

Woman Inside

How easy it is to belittle the feminine, to blame her. Perhaps women are easy targets for nothing happens without them. The feminine energy is both the lowest and highest rungs of the ladder, of the darkest valley and the tallest peak. The world does not start with Adam, it starts with Eve.

Finding LGBTQ In STEM

Based on that sole piece of advice, I asked around, read more to find the truth of the matter and just like that, an article published on the Forbes website last year caught my attention which reported that fewer gay men choose to opt a STEM degree than heterosexual men. My focus quickly turned towards my own experiences and I started pondering deeply over situations that I faced as a homosexual individual in the STEM community and here’s my story.

Dear You

You, a stranger miles away. I won't romanticize this feeling that I felt, I just like being liked.

A Letter About Heartbreak

I remember that I waited for you for two hours. I was shuffling between the pages of my diary, trying to write many things about you, so at least one thing will eventually make sense. But it was as challenging as looking for a needle in a haystack to express what I feel for you.

On Being Scared Of Myself

I am a proud person. I have attended a couple of Prides. I too had put a sticker on my face and felt happy. But when I am alone, disgust creeps on me like little ants. The air feels stagnant and I am scared again.

Stranger Things

It feels like I’m reading a sign at the train station, This can’t be me, can it? Buried under those fluorescent-dyed teddy bears, I’m the shiny little one in the corner, Maybe this time it’ll be my turn.

Queerness, Grief And Self Acceptance

I remember looking at those colorful pictures of Pride Marches in the papers. The bright but defiant faces, people protesting the law and celebrating themselves, I was more in awe than anything else. It just never occurred to me that people in small towns also do love or queerness or revolutions. It was one of those things, something amazing and rare but one that only happens in movies, books and big cities.

What’s Pride Got To Do With It? Everything, And Then Some.

When our ancestors weren't ravaged by the vastly-ignored AIDS pandemic or persecuted by political and religious institutions alike, we were abandoned by all systems of care (families, friends, you name it). Even the process of making therapy queer-affirming has only just begun and it still leaves a vast chunk of the population out, in terms of accessibility. We have been fighting to be seen, heard, acknowledged and represented despite our disabilities, performative 'politically correct' allies, and a looming threat to our very lives - if not at the hands of our debilitating mental illnesses or police brutality, then by self-proclaimed vigilantes claiming to protect their children from us.

Dissecting Tejas Pande’s WhatsApp-Free University

As part of Pro Helvetia's open call entitled ‘Now On,’ Tejas created his brainchild ‘WhatsApp-Free University.’ The open call invited creative responses to overcome the current pandemic and its impact on the core work of promoting arts and international arts exchange.

Money And Free Bus Rides For The Trans Women In Tamil Nadu- Are They Enough?

The Union Ministry had also extended their aid and provided Rs. 1,500 to trans people across the country. To access this benefit, they had to register using their Aadhar cards and provide their bank accounts. But since registration was only possible in Hindi or English and Aadhar cards often had dead names of the person, while many others did not have their medical certificate, this was largely inaccessible and designed for failure. Moreover, not all who applied received the money either.

Tanmaya Bhatnagar’s ‘Raat Adhoori’: A Soothing, Indie Ballad

Visually, ‘Raat Adhoori’ takes you on a journey of unfolding memories. It is the simplicity of the tender moments and gestures that makes you instantly believe in the strength of the love it depicts. There is a lot that can be unpacked among the interesting visual metaphors of typewriters, crumpled papers, and serene lakes.

Podcast

Fat. So? Fatphobia. NO.

We are constantly surrounded by myriad capitalist forces like movies, magazines, fashion, and more that reiterate being thin as the ideal. So even when you want to accept yourself, you are hindered in this journey because you can’t find clothes in your size in stores, or a family member is being judgemental, or you’re being bullied by a medical healthcare provider, or a hundred other things screaming at you that you ought to become thin. Pallavi and Ameya are two individuals who know these struggles all too well and have taken it upon themselves to publicly combat these notions through their podcast called Fat.So?

Archie’s Dad Is Al(b)right!

If you’ve attended a pride parade, then I am sure that, given the ongoing pandemic, you are bound to experience nostalgia. The description is not only overwhelming but is full of queer innuendos and hilarious stuff that can only happen during a pride parade, or I would like to believe so.

Gaysi Zine

Gaysi Zine aims to reach people living in smaller cities who have no access to private parties or public spaces and hence feel isolated from the queer movement. We hope, these stories will be ‘the stories worth its weight in gold’ for them. Our stories will be written for those who still believe that they are the only ones who are different.
