    This is genre I haven’t explored as yet. The books you have recommended in your post are intriguing enough to star off with. Of these i have only read ‘Lihaaf’ and I thought the boldness of that story was a great cover for the sensitivity of it.

    I’ve not read many books of queer fiction or non-fiction, but I’ve seen Queeristan being promoted on social media. Also, I heard ‘Cobalt Blue’ is supposed to be good although I haven’t read it. Back in 2017, I read ‘Suicide Notes’ by Michael Thomas Ford, which turned out to be queer fiction.

    I’m amazed at your research and the variety you include in your reading. This isn’t a topic I’ve read much on and am truly curious to pick up one of these books. Thanks for the recommendations.

    Sounds like a good list. However, I will wait for your fiction recommendations. I haven’t even read Lihaaf and Kari. Will rectify that ASAP.

    This is a great list for reading queer fiction I will start with same sex love in India and go ahead with your list. Many web series have now started exploring this genre.

    I like the book covers. It seems that all these books are quite interesting and hidden lots of information into it.

    I have hardly read any Indian book on LGBTQ. It looks like a great list. Would love to read a few.

    Though the world is changing, people are still hesitant to talk about gender identity – thank you for listing out good reads for those who genuinely want to understand and add positivity where it’s really needed today!

    I have not read any of the books in your list. Some of them sound interesting & I will be sure to try. I too have chosen this as one of my Cause A Chatter themes though i was looking at it from a completely different perspective. Thanks for this view to the prompt.

    Even now homosexuals are a butt of joke. I hope with more literature and movies seeing light, this would change.

    I read Lihaaf in Jan. And loved the subtle unusual story telling. I believe there was a lot of noise around this when it was published. In awe of your reading list. I think I’m going to pick up Zubaan books soon. Seen so much good stuff by them.

    Will definitely give a read to the books you’ve covered. This is a subject i want to read about, as its depicted with so much crass and bias in society.

    I have been seeing many people are talking about LGBT. Not read any of these books. What I know is things that make you uncomfortable and create fear of society needs to be work upon.

    Love the research you do for all your book listicles. Of these, I’m only familiar with Saurabh Kirpal’s work.
