LGBTQ activist from Kerala, Aishwaryan said, “To be accepted by your own people for your preference is what I always had an issue with, but many factors are involved and we have a long way to go. If people from my generation and I are today celebrating this victory, it’s in remembering all those loved ones who are no longer here and wished to see this day. It’s just one hurdle that we have passed and many more to go. We deserve every equality to live the life we want to. Who is to decide who lives how? We are all equal, these are all basic human needs we are fighting to be accepted for.”
“The idea of conservative thoughts itself is so selfish, not only in our aspect, but in every way. The times that we are living in is very volatile and if not questioned now, then the future is not something that we all hoped to live and for our generations to come,” he added.
