Laadli, an initiative by Population Firs, has released a ‘16 days of activism campaign’. The campaign which underlines the annual observance of ‘16 Days of activism against Gender Based Violence’ focuses on the theme – ‘Life of sexual minorities in India’ and encourages everyone to contribute their thoughts and views in the form of short films, poetry, blogs, short stories, posters anything that focuses on sexualities in our country.

 

According to Dr A L Sharada, Director-Population First, “Sexual minorities in India are misunderstood and subjected to violence and discrimination. We aim to break the stigma around sexualities while creating spaces for discussion and sharing of experiences.”

 

The 16 days of activism against gender based violence campaign targets the lesser addressed section of the society – sexual minorities which includes the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual) communities. All entries will have to be sent before December 1, 2016.

 

The campaign will culminate with the showcase of 16 selected prizewinners in an event in Mumbai on December 10, the day for International Human Rights.
