Asian Report for 5 April 2011 - Outgames 2011

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:37 pm on 5 April 2011

The Gay-Lesbian-Bi-Transgender-Intersex communities or GLBTI for short, increased their visibility with the recent Asia Pacific 2011 Outgames in Wellington. Jason Moon talks to one of the speakers, Geeta Misra, a writer and activist for women's rights in South Asia. Geeta is from India where homosexuality is generally considered a taboo by both Indian civil society and the government and rarely discussed until now. Recently it's been given a much higher profile.
