India’s first LGBTQ radio show aims to broaden the country’s concept of love

India’s first LGBTQ radio show aims to broaden the country’s concept of love:

“Just your average Sunday afternoon radio fare — except that the host was Harish Iyer, perhaps India’s most outspoken gay rights activist, and his guests were a transgender woman and her straight husband.

They were speaking on “Gaydio,” the first radio show dedicated to LGBTQ issues in India, where homosexuality is taboo, same-sex relations are officially illegal and most marriages still take place within socially prescribed boundaries of caste and religion, not to mention gender.”

And with that, I’m signing off as your guest moderator! Thank you G3S for giving me this space to curate a week exploring various queer Asian activisms. Hope y’all enjoyed your weekends! ^_^
