Aloof from the bright and dreamy lights, there&rsquos always that one corner in the café which used to be dedicated to people belonging to the lgbtq community. Carving a space amidst the darkness, the dingy rooms have tales to narrate and several stories that are buried in the cacophony of loud music. With changing times (even though the road is still long and battles are yet to be fought), several cafes are now standing tall with pride, dignity, hard work and love. Gone are the days when people mask their true identities because of society. Now, they can enjoy the breath of fresh air. There are several cafes in India which are run by the queer community that are not only inspirational but also generate employment for the LGBTQ community, provide a space and platform for them to share their feelings, and be unapologetically themselves.
