As news of her death spread, people and fellow activists started paying their homage to her on social media. In a note posted on his Facebook page, leading gay rights activist Ashok Row Kavi wrote, “Good-bye Betu Singh, aka Anandita Singh! Lone-ranger lesbian activist who rescued and sheltered lesbians, bisexual women and transgendered men who ran to her from every nook and corner of India looking for solace, cowering from the rage of parents or neighbours wanting to murder, maim or marry them to abusive husbands.”
The Humsafar Trust will hold a memorial service in the memory of Betu Singh from 7.00-8.00 PM on Monday, October 7, 2013, at their Vakola Drop In Center. The memorial service will screen 20 minutes of Betu’s interview in Project Bolo about her life, work and journey and will be open to everyone who wishes to pay a tribute to her.
