Gaylaxy May-Jun, 2013

Away from the hum-drum of pride parades and parties, gay men and women are meeting over social gatherings based on their interests and hobbies. Our cover story explores how queer people are re-defining what being gay in India is about. This apart, Dr. Himadri Roy gives an interesting insight into how post 2009, with increasing awareness, there has been objectification of gay men. Hadi Hussain reports about Taan, a new TV series that will soon be hitting the Television screens in Pakistan and would also be dealing with the issue of homosexuality. Another campaign called “Mujhe Tumse Kuch Kehna Tha” was launched in Pakistan to reach out to other queer people in the country through social media and deliver the message of hope to them.
