Purple Skies (Rainbow Reels)

Rainbow Reels 2015

Women in India are often disempowered by a predominantly patriarchal structure, and to be a lesbian, bisexual or transman means double disempowerment. Fighting against stereotypes, gender & sexual bias, rigid family values and a law that criminalizes homosexuality, LBT people in India face insurmountable challenges to live openly and with dignity.

‘Purple Skies’, a feature documentary by award winning filmmaker Sridhar Rangayan, weaves together heartrending stories of LBT people victimized and subjugated by the law, the family & society, as well as hopeful stories of youngsters who have come out of the closet bravely.

By placing it in context of the historic struggle of the LGBT community in India, and juxtaposing personal stories with critical analysis of issues by activists & advocates; the film offers a compelling inside view of Indian LBT lives.
