Kiruba Munusamy on caste and the #MeToo movement
Kiruba Munusamy dissects the #MeToo movement and how caste invariably affects the process of accusation and investigation. 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. Part one of Queeristan featured a panel discussion with activist and India's first trans engineer Grace Banu, activist, poet and urban sexual geographer Dhiren Borisa, advocate and founder of Legal Initiative For Equality Kiruba Munusamy. The conversation was moderated by writer-director and student activist Aroh Akunth.
