As a part of “ZeroKaata For LGBTQ Initiative”, Alex Mathew talks about his journey of self-discovery and how he became Maya- The Drag Queen.
Before you scroll down to the video, here’s a little bit about Alex and our initiative.
What Is ZeroKaata For LGBTQ?
ZeroKaata For LGBTQ focuses exclusively on acknowledging and empowering the queer community of India.
While our country’s LGBTQ community is no longer as invisible as it once was, there are a lot of challenges and social hurdles that every queer individual has to face, and our initiative “ZeroKaata For LGBTQ”, is an attempt to shed light on such stories; thereby, creating awareness among people and encouraging more people to accept everyone without any discrimination.
As a part of this initiative, we have shared heart-touching stories of 5 individuals, who were brave enough to step out of their comfort zone and fight for a world free of all forms of inequality and discrimination.
