From August 2016 to July 2017 Mumbai-based KASHISH International Queer Film Festival will travel to 15 universities in different Indian cities with KASHISH Forward.
KASHISH Forward presents film screenings and discussions about gender, sexuality, identity, coming-out, family pressure and homophobia. Homosexuality is a social taboo in India, where the LGBT community has largely been underground and higher courts have recriminalized homosexuality. KASHISH Forward wants to attract mainly students and university staff in order to contribute to queer-friendlier campuses in India. Read more about the initiative here.
This project is supported by Movies that Matter.
