Divyaroop is a working professional from Mumbai and identifies as gay. He talks about growing up, about friends, love and family. He also tells how it took him 18 years to accept his feelings, and when his family found out about his sexuality, how they tried to change him through yoga. Today Divyaroop is in Mumbai and says, “We don’t talk about me anymore, mostly about my personal life. Now I just want to make sure that in the end, my family and I have our personal spaces maintained yet we are connected to each other so that none of us is left without a family member.”

Connect Conversations is India’s first LGBTQ-themed web-series, consisting of LGBTQ people talking about their stories and experiences. It is a part of ‘Saathi Connect’, a project by some members of Saathi, IIT Bombay’s LGBTQ resource group, that seeks to document stories of LGBTQ people and allies in Indian languages.
