As part of our celebrations for #PrideMonth this year, Rolling Stone India is proud to present a special #PrideGig this weekend, featuring music and spoken word performances by some of India’s most talented queer artists. The show is one of the many events of our editorial campaign titled #ThisCoverStoryIsAConversation for our #PrideIssue 2020 and will take place this Sunday, June 14th, 2020.
This year, we want to initiate a range of conversations and dialogues that are crucial to the LGBTQ+ cause, with conversations and art showcases, interviews by shining the spotlight on music and popular culture figures in the country who have been pillars of the community.
The artists on the lineup include Bengaluru alternative indie-pop musician GrapeGuitarBox aka Teenasai Balamu, New Delhi’s acoustic guitarist and singer Jay, Kolkata-based poet, student and environmentalist Indranil Basu and former Mr. Gay World India 2016 and writer, Anwesh Sahoo. An event that’s open to all, the #PrideGig will be broadcast on June 14th at 6 pm via Zoom, with ticket sales from the livestream going towards the long-standing Humsafar Trust’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
