Ep. 10 feat. Aditya Joshi

In the latest episode of Keeping it Queer, Aditya Joshi, a PHD student and activist, talks about how he was called names for being different, why his sister-in-law created a fake dating profile, why furry bears are here to stay and most importantly, how he started the Sathi connect cell in IIT Mumbai.

Some interesting conversations from the episode:

Aditya - I was focusing on my studies primarily as a way to escape the bullying at school.

*

Navin - So what is the general consensus about the LGBT community in the IIT sector?

Aditya - A survey recently showed that 93 percent of IITians felt that there should not be a low that discriminates against people based on their sexual activity. Most of them were supportive but around 50 percent said they don't want a gay roommate.

*

Aditya - We had many of these orientations where I would stand on the stage and talk to a bunch of new students, telling them that I'm gay. And telling them that if they need help they can connect with me. It helped me grow and become more confident.

*

Aditya - The benefit that Saathi really achieved is that it spawned a lot of similar groups in other IITs and colleges.

*

Aditya - When somebody is a good student it is easy to accept that they are gay. Where do the bad students go?
