Queer Futures Potluck Party

Queer Futures Potluck Party

Co-curated by Vidisha Fadescha and Shaunak Mahbubani

"The site of the Party is one of community gathering, political utterance, and affirmative care. One year after the reading down of Section 377 by the Supreme Court a lot has changed in the landscape of India, while from other frames nothing has really changed. ‘Queer Futures Potluck Party’ (QFPP) was this moment to celebrate a hard-fought victory for equal citizenship, acknowledge the participation of multiple agents in our journey so far, and collectively contemplate the future of our movements. To orient our fight to support queer peoples that are now at further risk because of new constitutional amendments, and to seek more spaces where we are free to revel in our gender and identity expressions."

Queer Futures Potluck Party was realized within the framework of Five Million Incidents 2019-2020 supported by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan in collaboration with Raqs Media Collective
