Queer sexualities In Indian Culture

The anthology Queer Sexualities in Indian Culture: Critical Responses surveys the queer (LGBTQIA+) space in Indian culture in reference to literature, movies and other important media of culture. Shedding light on the marginalised position of queer in Indian culture, the anthology seeks sympathy for this minority class of people from majorities. It traces out factors like gender stereotype, body politics, prejudism etc. causing these minorities to lead a life of invisibility. Along with a critical introduction and an interview with queer activist and author Ruth Vanita, the anthology has covered sixteen well-explored articles through which authors have tried to sincerely articulate their noble ideas on queer studies in Indian context. The book will be helpful not only for readers who want to know about Indian queers but also prove resourceful to scholars who intend to do further studies on it.
