S02 E18: Danish Sheikh (Playwright of Contempt)


This week on Keeping it Queer, Navin talks to Danish Sheikh, a human rights lawyer who is taking the fight against Section 377 beyond the courtroom and onto the stage, with his latest theatre production, Contempt.

He talks to us about the idea behind the play and why he believes that tapping into the anger the queer population in India feels is necessary to challenge the authorities.

On the Culture Vulture segment, Farhad and Navin delve deep into their sexting habits and discuss a film that has sexting in the center of a controversy.
