Queer Flash Mob – Marine Drive, Mumbai

According to Gaylaxy Magazine this moderate sized event was the first gay flash mob in Asia.

As part of the pride week celebrations currently going on in Mumbai preceding the actual gay pride march in the city on 28th Jan, Mumbai today witnessed India’s first gay flash mob, which also happens to be Asia’s first gay flash mob. It was a pleasant surprise for many present at Marine Drive when a little after 6pm, more than 50 people started dancing to a medley of carefully selected Bollywood songs ‘Character Dheela’, ‘Sadda Haq’ and ‘Maa Da Ladla’.

Read the rest on Gaylaxy here.

Apologies for the shaky mobile phone video but it is the most complete one I could find thus far.

The Things You Learn: Breaking and HipHop in Iran 2012

Known more for human rights abuses it is fascinating  getting an insight into something a bit6 more positive. The fascinating documentary by Bboy Spaghetti looks at an interesting dancing subculture in Iran – much of it is pretty easy on the eye too.

Serious Stuff. Swedish Trans People Forced to Undergo Sterilization

I was following this for a few days if I’m honest and didn’t post anything.  My reason? I assumed it was an archaic law that Sweden  would correct pronto. Apparently it still stands.   This is a revolting law that the Swedish Government should be ashamed to leave on the books and especially so because they are pandering to a fringe party.

We are all human and entitled to the same rights regardless of our race, gender identity, orientation, religious views or lack of them, appearance etc.  How does the Swedish government justify sterilization as a reasonable criterion for officially changing gender?  I don’t know but I am as sure as fuck they need to change that ridiculous law or else they will look as awful as nations that allow female genital circumcision.

Here is the face of what you are doing Sweden – and thanks to All Out for the link.

I signed the petition and you should too.

OMG, looking at a video from Sweden  from someone who got off  because he is a US  citizen. Proud of him for  making the video.

I love my Trans sisters and brothers. We all need to embrace the  ‘T’ in ‘LGBT”.
