Support Bhopal LGBT Pride

Madhya Pradesh's First Pride Parade is not just a parade.
It is a celebration of who we are questioning norms of stereotypical notions of gender & sex.
BHOPAL is home to thousands of 'Hijras' and 'Meethe' people who demand inclusive spaces, acceptance and freedom from abuse & humiliation.
This year we will be out to support for equal rights and freedom, to be, to speak and love. We will be voices of the minorities, gender, sexualities, caste, ability, artists, students. This is a call for all human rights supporters, allies and LGBTQIA community rockstars to join us & contribute much as possible.

Because we don't want sponsors or a banner that dilutes the "Pride". There is no ONE organisation and we all stand upright and proud. We want to reach out to community and be accountable and transparent.
We have been advocating rights over a year with the communities and wish to bring new dialogues, sessions, events and artistic renditions now.

We will be using {if exceeded} these funds to build a support group for the community as well. Please feel free to ask any questions.
Our major expenses are:
1. Logistics. (Light sound, stage, venue costs, electricity)
2. Travel and accommodation for two of our key speakers (outstation)
3. Building a support group &
4. Merchandise & print collateral for promotion ; Exhibition
5. Basic F&B for our participants (13-16 May ; performers & volunteers)
