CHRONICLING QUEER LIFE IN CHENNAI
Queer communities, like all other communities, evolve in a way that is intricately related with their landscape. Chennai, as an urban landscape– the cultural-economic capital of a land with long history of culture and caste – has an equally complex Queer community of its own. The chronicles of which hasn’t been recorded on conventional mediums significantly. What urban landscapes lack in an oral tradition.
Our vision for Queer Chennai Chronicles is to collect individual and collective narratives from Queer people who associate with Chennai. We expect the narratives to be your experiences with the city as an individual, your personal experiences, how it embraced or alienated you, and your experiences with the Queer community of Chennai. Feel free to define ‘you’ and ‘the city’ yourself. The series of books would be in the formats of biography, anthology, non-fiction, fiction, art and photography.
