I heard about Delhi's first pride parade celebration this year and would love to help out in attempting this superb venture. I'm a student from Harvard University currently in Delhi, and while I cannot contribute financially, please let me know what opportunities there are for volunteering at/for the event.

I am very exited that Delhi finally has its own paride parade. It was also good to read about it in the national newspaper. I got more info on it through guys4men. Bless the people who are doing all this. I would like to help in the run up to the event and on the day as well. Im wondering if anyone is organising a float with dance space music and pom poms. That would be fun! Anything to increase our visibility. I can get some friends for the float if the logistics allow.

I am interested in volunteering at the Delhi Queer Pride Event on June 29. Please let me know if there is anything I could do. I'm a student of Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi, and have been a part of Kaivalya, a project of the Youth Parliament Foundation that works actively for the transgender community.

I received intimation of the delhi pride plans via an email forward...and am thrilled to hear about it. As someone who lived and worked in delhi till late 2004, when the only thing that seemed to be happening was the tuesday party at xxx - its truly great to see the first steps towards building a queer community. Congrats...
One of the reasons I'm writing also is because I'm part of the Board of Trikone - which is the San Francisco Bay Area's South Asian LGBT association (some of you might be familiar with it). (trikone.org). I'm also the new editor of the trikone magazine - a quarterly - which we are in the process of revamping. The next issue is due in September and it would be great if we could get pictures of the march as well as an article write up about the pride marches in Delhi and the other cities (Just Delhi would be great too). Please let me know - I look forward to hearing from you. And wishing you a fantastic pride!

I am a crossdresser. I love to wear all the femail dresses whether Indian or Western. But I could not do so often as I have no place to dress myself as a lady. For this reason I feel depressed.I am annxious to participate in the Delhi Queer Pride of 29th June in female mode but without revealing my identity. Can you people tell me any place where I can transform myself as a lady for the purpose of witnessing this great occasion aswellas whenever I wish to do so. Kindly also suggest me some suppot group ,preferably a hijra group, in whose company I can feel secured. When and wherefrom I can acquire the mask to cover my face.

Hello, I am a traveller staying in Delhi for a (suprisingly) long time and have decided to stretch my stay a few days further after reading that the first gay pride march for India will be held here on Sunday. Congratulations! As I am really only staying in town for the march, I will be free for the next few days. Is there anything that I can help you with before Sunday rolls around?

Dear Dehli Queer Pride,
I'm actually organizing a pride event this year in Toronto. I just wanted to wish you all the best and god bless you for going out there and marching for your rights! Living in Canada is one thing, but knowing that your homeland, there's still so much homophobia is pretty depressing. There's STILL homophobia HERE! just because same-sex marriage was legalized, it means nothing. It doesn't change people's attitudes. Hope all goes well!

I wanted to know about the committee that you guys talked about in the email. What sort of help would you be needing in fundraising and organizing the parade?

While I don't know yet if I can actually make to the Pride parade tomorrow or not (I live in Gurgaon, so I always have transportation issues) I would love to get involved with the queer rights movement in India in general, and Delhi in particular. If there is any way in which I could help out at any time (petitioning, political advocacy, publicity, anything) do please let me know. I'd love to be of help! If you could direct me to other ways I could get involved in the queer rights movement here, please let me know that as well!
