Sumeet Samos at Queeristan

Rapper Sumeet Samos closed 'Queeristan - Caste and Queerness' with his powerful verses on Dalit oppression and caste discrimination.

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. Queer identities are shaped by caste. Queeristan - Caste and Queerness talked about what it means to be Dalit and queer in India.
