Safe spaces are vital to cities. Introducing you to People’s Choice in Hyderabad, a cafe exclusively for LGBT+ community that gives them a safe space. One of the unique/cool things about this cafe is the myriad of themes they have- Glow in the Dark room, Vintantique (the retro room), Queeropedia (the queer room), and the Unofficial Velvet (Bakery room). That’s not all. The in-house chef is always open to new ideas and suggestions for food options. They also conduct workshops and counseling sessions for people. The founder, Hephzibah Smith, is also a chef, bartender, food & travel blogger, national level badminton player, photographer, menu designer, restaurant consultant, aspiring lawyer and she aspires to be a lot more. Along with her co-founder, Tilottama Panda, they share a passion for travelling and exploring new things. Their dream of owning their own business materialised into People’s Choice. Their next step: make People’s Choice national.
