The whole world is more or less adapted to accepting the LGBTQIA+ community. However, there is still taboo against the term ‘Pride,’ and even casual meet and greet meetings by community members are met with hush hush whispers and raised eyebrows.


However, given that they are marginalized and a minority, the community needs more spaces for like-minded people, and this is somewhat difficult, though they are now an accepted group. But there is hope and good news for the LGBTQIA+ community in Hyderabad. The restaurants and eateries are working towards helping them have a good time with food, music, privacy, and love.


One person who kick-started the trend happens to be Hephzibah Smith, owner of People’s Choice Cafe in Sainikpuri. She shares that her place was specifically started for her community. A bi-sexual, she says she found it difficult to find a safe, quiet yet happening place to chill. That’s when she decided to create one herself. She says straight people are welcome, but she always wanted a place to accept herself and her partner. The cafe will soon be organizing a queer speed-dating event and some drag concerts.


Anvesh Alluri, the founder of Aaromale Cafe in Film Nagar, believes every cafe and public space needs to be LGBTQIA-friendly. He says that all spaces must welcome the Pride group and let them be themselves. He says that community participation and involvement are the core that defines them as a creative space, and he reiterates that LGBTQIA+ events are no exception. Anvesh says his restaurant celebrates Pride month on a grand scale and adds that the community likes the fair and equal treatment they get at his restaurant.


Anvesh also sensitizes people about the community and helps them become more aware. He says the problem arises as many are socially and economically backward. Similar thoughts are expressed by Dhanesh Sharma, the owner, and chef at Terrassen Cafe in Film Nagar. He says the LGBTQIA+ community should not be left out, and cafes and restaurants should focus on serving people food and not discriminate against anyone.


Other restaurant owners, such as Bhoomika Perti of Sacred Earth Cafe in Madhapur, are airing similar thoughts. The LGBTQIA+ community feels it’s important for policies to be more inclusive and widespread sensitization.
