Naveen Gavaskar just wants a traditional Indian marriage to a nice Indian… boy. While his parents are trying to wrap their heads around this strange idea, his older sister returns home and drops a bombshell of her own. A comedy about love and marriage today- gay or straight, arranged or not.

I’m very proud to have written this feature article for Hinduism Today Magazine with Hari Venkatachalam. We worked on it for nearly a year to provide a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to LGBT issues, lives and stories in the Hindu tradition. I learned a lot and was heartened by the generous support of the magazine’s editorial team. Do give it a read if you can. Features an interview with one of my favorite performance artists and human beings, D’Lo.
