Homosexuality was only decriminalized in India in 2018 and there is a huge, diverse and growing LGBTIQ human rights movement across this country of 1.4 billion people. This will be a fascinating panel with four interesting activists: Sonal Giani, a well known filmmaker and diversity & inclusion specialist in Bangalore, Anish Gawande, who runs Pink List India, which engages LGBTIQ-supportive politicians in India, Kalki Subramanian, a transgender activist and writer from Tamil Nadu, and Manvendra Singh Gohil, Crown Prince of Rajpipla.
