Dhiren Borisa on Dalit queerness

Poet, activist and urban sexual geographer Dhiren Borisa spoke about what it means to be Dalit queer in India at Queeristan: Caste and Queerness at our lab in January, during Pride month. Queeristan: Caste and Queerness explored how public discourse around LGBTQ rights movement in India has been dominated by narratives of upper caste activism, disregarding anti-caste assertion within the movement, and caste-based discrimination against Dalit-queer people. Dhiren spoke about desire, desirability, and how continuous struggle is what defines being Dalit queer in India today.
