What is it?

The Gaysi Family is a blog, and space, for the Desi-Gay community. To provide a voice to the LGBT community, Gaysi was initially just a place to post your experiences and stories, and has now blossomed into a space with a variety of authors, visitors and content from around the world.

The Gaysi Zine is an online publication by the Family, and it is releasing The Gaysi Zine Graphic Anthology in Delhi. Along with the release they will host a talk Boundary Breaking Graphic Arts in Queer India, on how the conversation of Queer is moving in Indian graphic arts, and literature as a whole.

Who is it for?

The talk is for the LGBT community, and their voice in India, but that does not mean it is restricted to them. Anyone from literary enthusiasts, writers and students to gay rights and social activists, to the layman who doesn’t know what Queer or LGBT communities go through, are invited, and will benefit from it.

Why should I go?

Visitors can expect to learn much about the contemporary LGBT community and their representation in media {primarily literature}, within the prism of the graphic arts space in India.

Sukanya Ghosh will moderate the conversation and panelists will include illustrators and journalists such as Harshit Vishwakarma {designer/artist}, Kruttika Susarla {illustrator}, Neha Sharma {illustrator}, Dhamini Ratnam {journalist} and Priya Gangwani {editor-in-chief, The Gaysi Zine}.
