Here are some FAQs answered for you


WHAT IS QUEER?

‘Queer’ stands for all LGBTIQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex & Queer) Individuals. This is a sexual minority group not accepted by Indian society that recognises only two genders and considers only heterosexual relationships valid.

WHAT IS QUEER AZAADI MARCH ?
Queer Azaadi March is an expression, a voice, a celebration and a platform to ask for equal rights of LGBTIQ individuals conducted in form of an annual Pride parade in Mumbai that was initiated on August 16, 2008.
 
This is called the Mumbai Pride March also referred to as the Queer Azaadi March.(QAM)
 

20 key Non Government Organisations & any voluntary individuals form QAM with this single purpose & determination

WHAT WILL THE FUNDS BE USED FOR ?
From 2011, QAM began conducting a week full of festivities and events in different pockets of Mumbai from movie screenings, flash mob, plays, meet-the-author to drag shows, street performances and mela and finally, the much awaited Queer Azaadi Mumbai Pride March which saw thousands of queer individuals walk to ask and assert their human rights of equality in eyes of law and society.
 
WHAT BESIDES THE MARCH?
Right from protests against insensitive depiction of queer individuals in media to organizing community events that addressed awareness issues to initiating review process for march organizing through surveys & beginning innovative fund raising initiatives, QAM has remained on forefront of many such activities through these years.
 

THE ROAD AHEAD?
The Supreme Court of India set aside the 2009 Delhi High Court judgment that decriminalized homosexuality on 11th December 2013. From now on the focus is not to lose the progress made for marginalized community. It is a challenging journey ahead and if there is someone who can help us in being a part of a truly inclusive society that looks at each individual as equal, it is YOU!
