*From Then to Now: Our Histories, Our Timelines*
August 11, 1992 saw India's first protest which used the vocabulary of gay
rights. It protested against the police raids on gay men cruising in Central
Park, Connought Place and asserted the importance of choice in matters of
love, sex and sexuality.
Come to discuss and witness a short visual presentation on the journey that
we've made since these first queer stirrings of the early nineties. Come to
hear stories about red-roses, half-secret meetings, lesbian-gay magazines,
film-festivals and jantar-mantar marches, of hook-up websites and sunday
socials, and of many more promises, lures and seductions!
Following the presentation and discussion at the Attic we shall proceed on
to a silent March at CP to mark the 15th Anniversary of the ABVA protest. To
re-own the spaces which were barred from us. To make our own queer city!
Through a participatory retelling in the present, we defragment our pasts,
thereby composing our own stories, free ourselves from the *invisibility* of
others, rendering us wholly more confident to determine the future.
Join Nigah in this journey to celebrate moments and histories which have
shaped our births and lives, secrets and voices.
