"My parents taught me never to judge others based on whom they love, what color their skin is, or their religion. Why make life miserable for someone when you could be using your energy for good? We don't need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful. "
- Taylor Swift
Even with @DiversityInLit and @FreeTheLGBT in motion, there are a very few Indian character on Wattpad and an even fewer number who belong to the LGBTQ+ community. This account was born to change all that. This is all for promotion, support, and acceptance of the Indian LGBTQ+ community. (We don't care about Article 377. At all.)
One story at a time, that's the plan here. Let's make a change, however small it might be. To support this movement/account, please write a story where at least one character is Indian /and/ gay, or bisexual, or pansexual, etc (i.e. a member of the LGBTQ+ community) and tag it with 'tgtgIN'. We will add it to the public reading list(s) and read/vote/comment. There will be monthly contests, challenges, etc so, keep on lookout for them. This movement/account can only be successful with your help and support. Please participate heartily!
This account is run by Kavya (@afterwords) and Anna (@trenches), and is an extension of @FreeTheLGBT run by the amazing Lydia.
Feel free to drop a message here or on either of our main accounts, when and if you need help with your story (we are both Indian so, we can help with that) or have queries about LGBTQ+. (We don't bite, swear.)
