Reel Desires #CIQFF2020 comes in the wake of India’s 2018 Supreme Court landmark decision in Navtej Singh Johar and Ors. vs. Union of India that read down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, thereby decriminalising consensual relationships among adults, and after the Lower and Upper Houses of Parliament voted the problematic Transgender (Rights of Persons) Bill into law. As LGBTIQA+ collectives in Indiatake on the task of increasing inclusion and reducing discrimination on the ground, we also work to engender change in hearts and minds, a task substantially more challenging than legal reform. One way we do this by participating in and producing cultures that reflect both the universality and specificity of our experiences.
