Being an Indian man of colour wearing a turban, I faced, and still do, a lot or racism and stereotypes within the gay community. I would also get asked questions like “Can Sikhs be gay?” or “Are you allowed to be gay?”
For a gay or lesbian in a village, the end of this problem is in exorcism or corrective rapes. For one in the urban areas, it is marriage. In a world where babas with a following of millions, endorse homosexuality as a disease which can be cured with yoga and meditation, people have to choose isolated, depressing lives over joining an eternal fight for the fundamental right to love.
