Being Gay, Indian, and Living in the Lion City

Charming and inquisitive, Mukul is a 28-year-old Indian who moved to the cosmopolitan city of Singapore to embark on his career as an immunology researcher. As he reminisces about his past in India and how he came to terms with his identity, Mukul also shares about finding love amid the global pandemic, and his volunteering experiences in an organisation that provides free HIV testing for the LGBTQ+ community. 

meditation of a genderqueer being

in meditation, i often focus on the third eye where i am able to see the present more clearly and remember who i am.  i am queer to the very core of my being, even though i have to hide it at times. my third eye is placed in front of the rainbow of my insides, in the middle of the “dark cloak” i often use to hide my identity – in order to protect myself.
