Many People, Many Desires


 ‘Many People Many Desires’ cuts across class, gender, language and caste, to tell the stories of gay/bisexual/lesbian persons living in the city of Bangalore. Through these conversations it calls forth the debate on the basic right to one’s sexual/gender expression, in a context where the state institutionalizes discrimination against sexual minorities by criminalising homosexuality under the Indian penal code’s section 377.

Questioning this law imposed under British colonial rule, exploring the texture of personal sexual choices, the film aims to generate discussion and mobilise support from within and outside the sexual minority communities.
