Another first for Chennai?

Time to be happy and &@!. Are Dayanidhi Maran and Jayalalitha going to fight it out for taking credit for this?

  • Hi Kaps,

    I read the same article in THE HINDU two days back,may you can check out here. The article starts with "The 300-strong society will bring together homosexual men" and title being "Forum to promote gay men's welfare inaugurated".

    I have read similar news a year back or so when Gay Marriage was legalised in Unites States (a particular state I mean), when I head this, the first thing that came to my mind was "Oh.. God, I am proud that atleast Indian Government does not support these kind of acts.." but when I read this couple of days, I was like "Damn........!"

    There are so many problems for the Government to look after, in the world where even a arranged marriage and love marriage does not stay long... how about this ? I mean this is so crap ? What ever, I am against such stuffs...!

    Its right time Chennai Government thought some good plans to promote for the people! And @Kaps, you can even update your post with the article linking to THE HINDU website! I think you missed it at their site when it was there couple of days back ? Anyways you got it now ;)!

  • Do not take me wrong... but ... of all places in India.. Chennai? I thought Bangalore was more liberal in this aspect. Bangalore is also the gay capital of India. But Chennai beat Bangalore to the first official club recognition. I thought Chennai was far far more conservative to allow for these kind of societies to exist. Maybe I live in a previous age!

  • It is welcome for a society that is more accepting, liberal and tolerant is good for us. It is also welcome as another nail in the coffin of Chennai being conservative.

  • @WA,
    :-)

    @Dreamchaser,
    I did read the Hindu article earlier. As you said, there are other burning issues for the government to tackle and it would take a while before they think of doing something about gay and lesbian stuff in India.

    @Murthi,
    Thanks for dropping by

    @Rubic Cube,
    Maybe there are more gays in Bangalore, but the Chennai one seems to be more organized. I agree with your view that Bangalore could be the gay capital of India.

    @SLN,
    It is still too early to say whether the society is open to such clubs / associations.
