Watch: MTV Roadies Gets Its First Lesbian Contestant

The much popular show MTV Roadies, (in)famous for the tough auditions that they take where contestants are grilled ruthlessly, has always taken a pro-LGBT stand. Many times, the judges have roasted people who had come for auditions and held anti-gay views. But things have come a full circle with the latest season of MTV Roadies, where a contestant comes out before the judges and the world on National Television as lesbian. Ankita Mehra, will be the first openly lesbian contestant on MTV Roadies. With the huge fan following that the show commands, especially among the youth, the latest season of MTV Roadies will hopefully be able to bust many myths about the LGBT community, and bring greater visibility and acceptance of LGBT people among the larger society. The show airs on Sat 25th Feb at 7 PM. Don’t miss it!
