When reflecting on impactful responses to the Amazon Prime Video show, Sarkar shared a poignant moment when his partner’s aunt, a 75-year-old from Jamshedpur, sent a heartfelt message.
She expressed a desire to make amends for past wrongs, asking, “What can I do? What can we do to undo the wrongs of generations?”
Discussing the current landscape for the LGBTQIA+ community in India, Jaydeep Sarkar highlighted the progress post the striking down of Section 377.
He emphasized the lingering challenges, stating, “It almost feels like we’ve been told that – ‘you can exist, but don’t ask for anything more.’ It’s far from the ideal. For instance, my partner and I had to approach 70 houses before finding one that would accept us as an openly gay couple.”
