Queering Bollywood

Queering Bollywood is an exhibition and demonstration of a collection of queer readings in Indian cinema. It is open and collaborative in nature. The idea for doing something like this was born at the Queer film festival organized by Pedestrian Pictures in 2003. The idea was to initiate the process of analysing and collecting information on queer representations in cinema, especially in the Indian context, by creating a database of resources ranging from articles, film clippings, magazine stories etc., aiming eventually to create:

  • a new dynamic of working together collaboratively towards a film or other such outputs around the idea of queer representations in cinema
  • a database on queer and subversive readings that can be used in group discussions, classroom, support groups even theme parties, nightclubs etc.
  • an exciting media product that is interactive and innovative, going beyond textual analysis of cinema, and making it a creative and academic exercise, thus reaching different kinds of publics

The entire Queering Bollywood project can be found on Alternative Law Forum’s website or by clicking here
