India Celebrated Gay Film Festival Kashish

Written by 


India has just celebrated gay films in Mumbai with the gay films festival KASHISH and that works very well! This year 124 LGBT films coming from 23 countries were presented.

Its director, Sridhar Rangayan, said: "Last year when we organised the festival, it was a great success. We also found after a proper survey that at least 28 per cent of the audience in the festival was from outside the LGBT community, from the mainstream."

"The participation of people at large shows a change in social attitudes – gays are not seen as ‘criminals’ anymore. The image of a gay man or woman is changing." he added.

Remember India decriminalized homosexuality there was only 2 years ago so it is really great this kind of events work.
