RealityIt’s hard enough to be female in India, a country where a woman is raped every hour, a bride is set on fire every six hours in a dowry dispute and 80 percent of illegally aborted foetuses are female, according to government estimates.
Add to that a male-dominated society deeply conservative about sexual matters and you get the picture of what it means to be a lesbian in India - it is a life of double discrimination – first because of your gender and then because of your sexuality.
“What a lot of lesbians face is ignorance – many people here think that there is no such thing in India. But when families do find out, the problems can be immense,”
