hello everyone , I have a story to share with you. I am in my late 20s now. My life in India as a young woman was full of confusions and unanswered questions when it came to my personal life. I always knew I liked girls but I had no idea what that makes me. And I couldn't dare to ask anyone coz I instinctively knew no one would say that it was OK . When I was 22-23, I told myself that I wasn't going to force myself to try to like guys , even if I ended up as a bitter old lonely woman. I wrapped up my feelings and moved on .When I was 25, I met a woman with whom I fell in love. This was when I found all my answers and all the confusions simply melted away. I believe every now and then God sends an angel to give you a hand if you are true to yourself. This woman was my angel. When she came to know how I really felt about her, she said that it was OK, there's nothing for me to feel guilty of! with those words she brought me back to life. She couldn't be with me and when we mutually decided to go in different directions, it left me in an nasty emmotional mess. I picked myself up and suddenly my life was brand new ! I don't have to marry any man ! I can choose , I have options and I can live the life that is normal to me ! Indian soceity is unforgiving and I know it would only make it harder for me to tell everybody who I really am. So I told only one trustworthy friend and she was really supportive. I have plans for my future which I wouldn't elaborate here. I don't know if they will work , I might still end up as a bitter lonely old woman but the important thing is I have found my true self and I am happy about it. I just want to tell to those of you who are still in the process of finding yourself, don't be afraid , don't feel guilty . You are beautiful just the way that you are, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Educate yourself, keep looking for answers , work hard , be a good human being and help those who needs help. Remember that you also have options and you too can choose . Good luck.

s*** (user currently living in INDIA) posted for lesbian readers on 17/03/2013 +15
I am a keralite. i am persuing my master of social work in a well known institution of our country. As all of us know that lesbianism is treated as a sin or which is against the will of the society. FROM MY PERSPECTIVE I DONT THINK THAT WHAT I AM DOING IS NOT RIGHT. i only feel sad when i think of telling about it to my parents. may be they will beat me or punish me.it wil break down all those dreams they had seen regarding my marriage and future.they may at their best hide this fact and marry me to another man. after all how many years they wil be with me? do they be a part of my life for ever? isn't it a cheating that i am doing to my husband by being physically satisfying him and keeping another person in my heart? i chose this because i am more satisfied physially as well as mentally with another lady than that of a MAN. as i am a student of MSW i know the other aspect of my ORIENTATION. Our sexual orientation is channelised during our teenages.
it is an individual right and freedom its not a society that is affected. like other love marriages happens in our society the same happens in this case too. when i cohabit with my partner i am not fighting against the society.if two people are happy in living together without disturbing the other societal people, what is the problem in that? the only 'UNNATURAL" that is happening is that the pocreation aspect is not happening in that particular relationship.we all are human beings. we have our own likeness and wishes.. so let us be what we are.. we are not curtailing anybody's freedom ,not harming anybody..as anyother human beings we just want to live a happy normal life. what is the point in living life without happiness???

Hi Everyone. This is Sinaark from India, Asia. I'm a film maker. I'm currently working on a script. Though the 377 section(LGBT rights) has become legalised in our country in the last year, still 90% people are treating it as a different issue.My script is to establish LGBT is nothing but a pure form of love and it's natural. With it the awareness portion will also be there.

I've assisted few national award winning directors in our country. I need help from all over the world. As it is an inspirational story I need financial support. Please response me.@ thegreatark@yahoo.co.in

MarĂ­a (user currently living in SPAIN) posted for gay lesbian bisexual readers in response to this story on 19/03/2011 tagged with gender identity +10
Hello, I'm a spanish middle aged woman and I've been married and have two grown up children. I had never realised I liked women. At least, not the way I know now I like them. But I could feel something wasn't OK with men. I started a thorough spiritual work in several paths, in order to know myself and find peace. A year and a half ago, I had several spiritual experiences and, by the same time, I discovered I was in love with a woman friend of mine. It as a wonderful experience, both emotional and sexually, and my life has changed since then. our relationship couldn't last much, because she didn't want to tell anybody, and I don't like living in the dark. However, it has helped me discover many things about myself, and now I can respect and like the way I am in all aspects of life. I understand that the unhappyness I was feeling before was because I was hiding to myself an important side of my personality. And I know there are many people like me, so I don't feel alone. Thank you all for being there.

Renee - Chennai Dost (user currently living in INDIA) posted for gay readers on 06/03/2013 +5
“Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
We knew not, of each other,
Yet, I fell in love with you!”

A look at this year’s Valentine season, one would have thought to give it a rest. Why? “Because it was in the middle of the week! And with a tight schedule like mine… got no time for love.” Yeah! Well that’s the excuse we all would like to come up with. But hey, c’mon! Who ever said we couldn’t celebrate it any other day?! Besides, every day could be as good as Valentine’s Day. And that’s exactly what happened!

On 9th February, Chennai Dost in collaboration with Pink Friends, painted the town pink! With all due respect to the colour red as a symbol of love on Valentine’s, it was the “pink crowd” that actually brought life to the party and spilled love in the air. Well, you might have thought it to be like a typical prom scene in a movie – guy goes to picks up his partner at 6pm; waits in the hall; sees his beloved partner floating down the stairs like an angel; presenting with a bouquet and heart-shaped chocolates; attending a party and dancing through the night; having an exotic dinner; exchanging sweet kisses at the top of the stairs under the mistletoe; and waving goodbyes with a deep sigh of contentment. Well, for those who didn’t attend the party, that might have just been the usual scheduled Valentine itinerary.

Shimmers, bronzers, colour contact lenses, styling gels, exotic perfumes, flamboyant outfits, groomed body, expensive accessories, condoms (yep! That too!), music, disco lights, roses (minus the thorns), drinks… and to go with it all, the charming romantic attitude. Yep… it was all there! But it just didn’t happen overnight! Members of Chennai Dost (CD) had started preparing for it almost a month back. Introducing the concept to the likes of a “pageant contest” (minus the entertainment and Q&A; rounds), CD members had setup an online voting system through their website for the hunt of the hottest hunk in Pink Town.

More than 200 nominations and a whopping 5000 votes poured in online for guys who either had their IDs in Facebook or in PlanetRomeo. This was a challenge to the team as it was their “amateur” experience! They had to keep up with the votes and clear them out as the online voting caused huge traffic in their website. The votes were frozen and 8 finalists were shortlisted, namely Reyan, Vivek, Shoban, Prince, Rubesh, Satish, Manish, and Ashwath. Meanwhile, other members we busy sending out invitations through every source possible as well as to every soul possible; right from Chennai to the LGBT communities in Madurai, Coimbatore, Puducherry and Trichy; to as far as loyal visitors residing in Kerala, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. Attending enquiries one after the other, the members pepped their spirits higher and worked tirelessly 24×7.

Nope… the clock didn’t strike midnight yet! The party had just begun. Gay pals, couples, bed partners, drag queens, trans … name them and they all turned up. The crowd turnout was close 250 individuals! Keeping such a crowd engaged was no easy tasks. Bala (Pink Friends) and Venkat (Director, Chennai Dost) welcomed all guests. Well… they had their bodyguards standing next to them most of the time to maintain decorum! Enter the secret chamber and lo! The air was filled with the scent of roses, clanking of glasses, rhythmic beats from the DJ and chitter chatters from the page 3 jabber mouths (no offense!). At the entrance, the pictures of the 8 finalists were on display. While few guests were curious, others pounced forward to drool over their secret crushes printed big! Each guest was entitled to vote for one stud out of the 8 finalist who would be later titled Mr. Chennai Dost 2013. Guys who didn’t make it were ogling at the trophy displayed in all its glory.

More than 150 anonymous votes were collected at the venue. Quite a few from the crowd were restless to know who the winner was! Well, we were just hoping the winner doesn’t get clobbered down with kisses and gropes and… you know the rest! Anyhow, while the votes kept coming in, the crowd swayed to the music of 2 DJs – a first time collaboration! DJ Don and Deepak took the crowd on a rollercoaster ride with people literally “getting on the floor” with JLo’s track; head banging with the Party Rock Anthem; dancing Bollywood Ishtyle to the tunes of Om Shanthi Om; dancing like Sheila in Sheila ki Jawani; and pelvic thrusting to the beats of tempo of Kala Sala and Google Google. Even the Gangnam Song kept the exhausted crowd on their feet till the end, and somewhere in the dark corners were the shy ones dancing slowly while their drinks coupled with music intoxicated them.

There were smacks on the back, pinches on the hips, pats on the chests, and a French kiss… oh heck! It was dark after all! The cupid had to keep up without running out of arrows! Well, that’s when the members decided to help the poor cupid. CD members organized a stall called “Secret Roses” whereby guests could anonymously offer a secret rose to another guy in the crowd they found hot or adorable, by informing or showing the members. A member would proceed to the guy and present the rose stating he has an admirer. But it just didn’t end with that! The rose pumped up the adrenalin in the guys which made them hunt of the secret admirer. Whether they found out or not… couldn’t be too bothered! Bet many would have said “yes”. There were few guests who were too kind and offered the roses to the members of the stall itself. Awe… Ain’t that chooo chweeet!! It has to be highlighted that we did have some daring Romeos who wanted to present the rose to the ones they admired directly!!! Kudos to them! Don’t be surprised if they actually took the rose to the bed together.

In every love stories, there’s always a “best Jodi” – the right couple. Be it Romeo & Juliet, Laila & Majnu, Brangelina, Shah Rukh & Kajol, Amitabh & Rekha, Surya & Jyothika, or . We all have our favourites. But for CD members, it turned out to be a tough task to identify the “Best Couple”, lovingly titled “Oh La La!” And oh la la, they certainly were – Uday and Anand. Amongst the many couples who came, some in same clothing, some in opposites, some dressed as per their personality et al; this couple made it to the top with their charms, persona, love, and their hot steps on the dance floor. For those who didn’t win the title… don’t fret and lose hope. We’re sure you may be the best couples in other domains (you know what we mean!).

Well… tic-toc, tic-toc… and everyone was waiting for the verdict for the winner of Mr. Chennai Dost title as time counted its way close to midnight. Well, unlike Cinderella, none of the finalists left any glass slipper. The finalists, dressed in their best tight-fitting attires, were biting their nails, while the guys crooning over them were waiting to catch hold of them. Many guests kept enquiring the organizers whether the finalists were present at the party. Before one could say yes, one finalist or the other would pop out of the crowd for a break, but be swamped back in by their fan following! And the winner of the Mr. Chennai Dost 2013 contest went to none other Reyan, who won by a huge count. Indeed, his looks were considered to be hot and charming – fair, reasonably tall, fit, groomed, and with red rosy lips. His picture conveyed a strong sense of self-confidence with his I-am-the-hunk look. Crowned with a wreath of pink ribbons and flowers, and adorned with a titled sash, Reyan was presented with the Mr. Chennai Dost trophy by Rupesh Reddy (Head, CD Events & Public Relations). Running closely behind was our Runner-up, Vivek. With his cute looks and sharp features, he is famously known as the Persian King, His eyes spoke volumes and his picture frame caught the attention of many passers-by. Reyan seemed flattered and lit up with his million watt smile, while Vivek was head over heels having raced ahead of the other finalists to grab the second spot. No, there was no oh-my-god-I-won crying scene. It wasn’t a beauty pageant… but it was a pageant of being yourself and being recognized.

This Valentine’s party wasn’t just a regular party to meet guys and hook up. It was a platform to create awareness about Chennai Dost; to provide a comfortable, healthy, non-sexual social space where the LGBT community could be themselves and mingle with their own kind, and probably meet their valentines. Pamphlets about CD’s vision, mission and the services offered to support the community were distributed by the members throughout the party. Presiding over the event, Vikranth (Founder of CD) stated that the party was a success and the group has been organizing and celebrating Valentine’s day with a party for the fourth year consecutively. “Through this event we continue to tell the world that love has no boundaries.” He added that “this particular event also stresses upon ‘life beyond sex’ to our community.” Vikranth mentioned that the group continues to receive overwhelming responses and hug turnouts at such parties as well as other event organized by Chennai Dost.

The whole team thanks the management of the venue and its guests for making it possible. Special thanks to the bartenders who were swift and managed to keep up with the crowd’s requests. Guys were certainly overflowing the counter for their drinks! We also thank our Bouncers who were there to prevent any untoward incidences that might have occurred. Well… for a fact we’re pretty sure that most of the guests were staring through the corners of the eyes at these Bouncers – tall, built, handsome (and for some… beefy!). But our bad luck, they didn’t turn out to be gay or bi. We certainly could see many guys smirking after being frisked before entering the venue. Ahem! You never know if one amongst them managed to even get the attention of the Bouncers too.

Nevertheless, for some they lived happily ever after; for others, the fairy-tale just began; and for few others… you never know. It could be worth the wait! Well… there’s always a next year for you guys! Buckle up, hit the gym, and visit the spas! Revamp yourself and present the new you at next year’s valentine to sweep your guy-next-door (or be swept by Prince Charming)!

It's a taboo to be a lesbian in India. I cannot go anywhere without being stared at if I'm with my girlfriend and even though I try not to let other people bother me, how can I ignore almost over 100's of people staring at the same time, every second when Im outside the house.

I want to feel safe to hold my girls hand and kiss her in public without always having my alert button on, hoping noone kicks up a fuss.

My girlfriend is British and she came to visit me in February 2013. It was the best time of my life even though I was scared to be open in public, regardless of the fact that I'm out to my family. We want to get married as soon as we can but the law doesn't allow us to. It would be ideal if we could get married in India but India doesnt recognise homosexuality yet , and I can't go to UK to get married that easily.

We've been together close to 2 years now and all we do is love each other dearly, I want to be able to walk freely and proudly in my own country with my -to-be- wife wihtout being scared and looked at like I'm some sort of freak.

Bhagya Rajesh (user currently living in INDIA) posted for bisexual readers on 28/12/2013 tagged with sexual orientation +5
I come from India. To be precise from Kerala, in the extreme south. The community there is extremely literate and males and females enjoy equal status to some extent. Kerala is really different from the rest of India: developed but still holds on to old traditions. This has affected the life of all the people. Here parents choose your spouse. Sure you will have some say in it but essentially you meet a guy or girl via a broker or internet marriage sites(we have a lot of them in India), you talk to them maybe five or six times and a few months later you're married to them. The criteria for marriage here is education, wealth and beauty. If you have all three you are hot in the marriage market. Yes, here marriage is like a transaction, spoiled by the dowry system which still persists. The girl ends up in a house and has to live with her in-laws probably until her husband saves enough money to have a house of their own, which will probably take ten years.
Parents here say that if the children love them they will only marry the people their parents want them to marry. So if you are a straight guy or girl and falls in love with someone, you have to have some real courage because when your parents find out that you're in a relationship they will probably lock you up.
In a place like this being gay, bi or transgender is pretty hard. As if to add oil to the fire, the supreme court of India has recently withdrawn an order by a high court to dis-criminalize gay sex. They still categorize gay sex with that of sex with animals.
The religious leaders are saying that gays disturb the natural order of things and that if gay sex is dis-criminalized there would be no reproduction. Obviously they don't anything about gays.
This is the situation in India. I am a girl from there and I've always felt that gays, bisexuals and transgender are completely natural. The world around me thought differently but I didn’t care. I couldn’t actually pin-point my sexual orientation when I was 12 or 13. It was really confusing then; sometimes I was not at all aroused by both sexes, which led me to wonder whether I was asexual. But when I was 14 I had two brief relationships, one with a boy and one with a girl (this happens a lot here, without the parents ever knowing). This made me see that it felt right with both of them, I did a lot of trials with myself just to make sure and after a few months I was sure. I am bi and could not be more proud of it. But I knew keeping this to myself would be the safe thing to do, but I felt I had to do something. Not telling anyone would not be hiding in the closet here, as I’ve said even relationships between girls and boys are looked down upon.
I finally decided to tell my friends. I had three best friends and I told all three. Two of them were fine with it and they were in support of me but one. The one I had known for 6 years stopped talking to me and even threatened to complain against me. I tried my best to talk to her but she turned my back on me and hasn’t talked to me in a year. This was hard on me and I could never have been alright if it weren’t for my other two best friends. Now I am 16 and debating on how to tell my parents. So in a few months someone is going to drag me to psychologist to fix me. I wish my parents and the parents all around the world the best of luck because there is no way they are going to succeed.

“Vikruti evam prakruthi�(what seems unnatural is also natural), the beautiful verse from Rig Veda, in queer sense describes srishti in a single line. Srishti is the first LGBTQ group designed to target specifically to the problems of queer people in non-metro cities of Tamilnadu like Coimbatore and Madurai. Srishti aims to eliminate the homogenization of the queer community arising from the dualism -straight/queer and works to educate people about the various diversities within the queer community itself, so that people gain more understanding of the queer community which would reduce the severity of social discrimination. the pattern of social discrimination in any form is of the hotspot of Srishti to work to reduce its severity so that it would vanish further and helps to counsel the peer queer friends, so that they can change themselves from the position of victim of the social discrimination to the position of fighting against those discrimination. Srishti is against the commercialization aspects of queer people in any aspects and helps in constructing the need of the self-respect for the queer people. Srishti is always multidisciplinary and via the Srishti science group Srishti aims to build the human resources of alternate sexualities and their representation through activities like expeditions, trekking etc. also such an initiative is of first of its kind in any LGBTQ group in India. Science club further aims to approach the alternate sexualities from a scientific perspective and impart people with the scientific knowledge of queer community so that the widespread idea of homosexuality is unnatural and a disease vanishes from the mentality of people. The peculiar aspect of srishti is that, it has separate group for genderqueer people as srishti genderqueer. The diversity of genderqueer like agender ,pangender ,bigender,trigender,androgynous etc is even unaware within the mainstream queer community itself, while srishti has a separate group for genderqueer to have a better representation of the problems of genderqueer.

Srishti is a student Group & not an NGO or CBO & do not accept corporate sponsors, all events of Srishti is organized by volunteer ship & individual donations, all accounts of Srishti is open to our volunteers.

in 2009 homosexuality was decriminalized by the High court. but on 11-12-13 it was again criminalized by Supreme Court. Welcoming the Supreme Court's verdict holding consensual sex between adults of the same gender an offence, yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday said homosexuality is just a bad addiction and added that yoga can cure it.

"Homosexuality is not genetic. If our parents were homosexuals, then we would not have been born. So it's unnatural," Ramdev told media here.

He further invited the gay community to his yoga ashram, saying, "I guarantee to cure them of homosexuality."

"I invite the gay community to my yoga ashram and I guarantee to cure them of homosexuality.

He also questioned the contribution of the gay community in streams like science and economics and also said that he would pray that all the journalists present at the press conference would not 'turn' into homosexuals.

My name is Vijusha Neelam, I am a transgender from India but undergone operation. At present i am in UK, doing my MBA. I had one same sex partner named Ms.Radhika for last 10 years, she separated me from my previous partner and when i married one man to settle her and the other girl friend, she was with me along with him and made me to leave him legally so as to live with her. My ex-friend Mr.Santhosh who is living with his wife, and three children deceived me and started having illegal sexual relationship with my partner. They both wanted to hide their relationship with me and when ever i go to India, wanted to be with me normal as she is my partner and he is my friend. I came to know this through Santhosh's brother, when i questioned they threw me out of the house. They both deceived me and ruined me physically, mentally, socially and economically. I want to fight for my rights legally, i need your gracious help. Hope you can do some thing. I have evidence of letters, photoes, greeting cards, and a house on both of our name which i bought.

waiting with great hope for your help.

Vijusha Neelam.

I think I might be transsexual or intersexual ; I still am confused. I was born as a boy but since the early ages my minds processes ae similar to that of a girl. I never tried cross-dressing yet I was
considered as a girl. Meanwhile, as of me from talking to thinking to anything else I unconcsiencely fall into the girls zone.

India is still a homophobic country. I am currently studying in a college in India, extremely homophobic people. The laws in India do not protect LGBT people from discrimination. I have lived in a homophobic region for 18 years, in which even related to a gay is a shameful thing for people. I tried to study my college years in Less homophobic places like, Spain, UK, NY, etc but couldn't go ONLY because my funds was low, although My application was accepted. I am still seeing hate comments and discrimination in all places in India. I am tired of fighting and M scared for my life in this country because the laws don't support us and I cant come out of the closet. I m sure my story wont may not be much attention and will be kept like a pile of other stories. But I m just screaming inside of me and just want to scream every time, when anyone tells a hate comment about gays. I just cant Live in India anymore. I have no money to study in a place where gays are not killed, nor can I stay here where there is too much homophobia. I just wanna leave India forever. or I will not survive for much longer.

one day i was late at work and had to stay back. the new office boy was a middle aged man and a bachelor. i asked him to get me some coffee. he spilled the coffee near my table while keeping it on my table. he got a mop and while bending down i noticed that his zip was open and i cud see his uncut cock since he was not wearing an underwear.
he saw me noticing it from the corner of his eye and smiled at me. i did not react and kept doing my work. i noticed that he did not put his zip up again. so i asked him why and he told me that the zip was not working and he needed someone to hold the zip while he put the mechanism in place. he asked me if i could him him. i had not other option and he came and stood near me and i held the ends of the zip while he was trying to push the lever.

during this exercise my fingers touched his cock and i noticed it enlarging in size. finally he had an erection. Since i had a slight gay tendency i liked it and started to fondle it. he too responded back by pulling out my cock and sucking it.
we came one after other...

Recently Philips launched a male grooming kit advertisement on the Indian Television. This advertisement stereotypes gays as effiminate.

Below is the link to the ad.


The advertisement starts with the effiminate John asking the macho Johns, why do they get to go on dates and not him. The scruffy one snubs him and replies "Kyunki ladki se Dosti Karni hai, Dostana Nahin" suggesting that "We want to do friendship with the girl, not enter into a Gay relationship as shown in the movie Dostana". The next sentence spells it out more clearly when the scruffy one says "Girls like to have Friendship with Real Men" while making rude gestures with his crotch.

The message this ad seems to convey is "If you want to be a real man (not a fag), use Philips Grooming Kit". So do they want to say that "Gays are not Real Men" and that "Girls dont like to do friendship with Gays" or that "Gays dont/cannot use Grooming Kits because they are not manly enough"?
