Queer love

Celebrating the city’s LGBTIQ community

As Pride Week inches closer, five queer couples from Mumbai let Time Out in on their love stories. The city alternately impinges on and sets these pairs free, even if migration forms the subtext to several of these bonds. But eventually, these relationships, like other urban ones irrespective of gender identity and sexual orientation, symbolise the joys and anxieties that are part of sharing one’s life with another.
