On Sunday, the Phoenix Arena in the city came alive with hundreds of members of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies, coming together for the 2021 Queer Carnival.

The city-based LGBTQ+ and human rights NGO – Mobbera Foundation, organized the event which marked the celebration of everything on the spectrum and more, as members of the community came together on such a big scale for the first time after the COVID lockdown.

The event saw over 20 dance and music performances, art displays, a pet adoption fair, a book fair, and even a flash mob by members where everyone celebrated diversity. The Bharatanatyam performance by Bengaluru-based Avijit Kundu was one of the highlights of the event. Showcasing the beauty of Ardhanareeshwara, emphasizing the non-binary elements of Indian mythology, his performance made everyone go in awe of him.

One of the core members of the NGO, Vishwa said that after such a long gap, it was a much-needed celebration. According to him, this event saw many from the community coming together and they even had performers coming over from Bengaluru and Pune. He felt ecstatic informing that It has been a long time since the community bonded and reunited. He also added that COVID protocols were thoroughly followed during the event.”

According to Shravani, an ally of the LGBTQ community, events like this one are a sign of progress as there is total acceptance in the society, without any judgment whatsoever. Though there is a long way to go ahead, it is imperative that all must come together and take it forward in making Hyderabad LGBTQ+ friendly.

Recently the Central Government opposed same-sex marriages in the country and the rage against this decision could be seen at this event where members of the community expressed their disappointment. A transwoman, Shane Mils, pointed out that it caused a lot of pain and despair but events like this one give them the strength and unite them for their cause.
