    Labeling yourself as an LBTQ became a requisite for access to the art scene.

    I haven’t read these books still but would like to read few of these for sure.

    I was introduced to this genre a couple of years ago and since then read a handful of books. The recommendation feels like a jackpot as I have been meaning to read more books on this genre. Saving it, for sure.

    I have immense respect or lgbtqia people. And the books, memoirs rather look heartwarming.

    In my school I have one friend like this, can’t call him like this, but yes he was. In my neighborhood we have one transgender. I saw them since my childhood and so have a lot of respect for them. I also saw how people behave with them and now how our society is changing, specially our generation. Would like to read these books. I haven’t read any of them.

    Rare collection of recco books, Ritu. There are so many of gay stories but few of lesbians. Even in the LGBT community we see the discrimination. Women are forced to marry and he heterosexual but most men get away with it. A lesbian is looked down more than a gay. All the books are a must read for sure.

    my my… the amount you read Ritu… Hats off! I have not read even a single book of this genre. Well, I haven’t read anything much off late at all… but some of your recommendations surely piqued my interest.

    That is quite a list. I will start with Laxmi Tripathi’s book. You have been after me to read it.

    How much we used to gossip about the same sex couples in the 70s and 80s. How ignorant! It’s good that they now have a voice and hopefully some normalization.

    I am totally up for LGBTQ rights for they’ve suffered a lot already. However, I really hope it does not take the shape of wokeness US is suffering from. There’s a thin line we should never cross. From the reviews of these books it looks that genuine people have narrated their stories. Which is why more people should read this.
