Spotted in The Times of India

For better of worse the media in India seems to latch onto stories that are, or even just seem to be, about anything involving the LGBT community. Last weekend we went to a screening of I am by Sonali Gulati. You can read more about the film and the issue of coming out in India in Meredith’s recent blog. I just wanted to share this fun item quickly. Here I am in the “Baroda Times” section of The Times of India. The caption under my photo reads “European guest looks on.”
