If last year’s Pride was an affirmation by the sexual minorities to celebrate their diversity, this year’s week-long events aim to reach out to a larger audience, heighten their awareness and dispel myths. Siddharth Narrain, an event organisers, said, “Bangalore is the only city in the country to have a week-long events for the Pride.”The events are a build-up to the Bengaluru Pride March that will take place on June 28.
Call it “popular demand”, but the week-long events also reflect the increased enthusiasm and energy this year. The Karnataka Queer Habba is being organised by a coalition of individuals and organisations that have come together under the banner of the Campaign for Sex Workers and Sexual Minority Rights (CSMR).
