QueerInk Publishing and Films firmly believes in telling queer stories by queer Indians. It is estimated that at least 90 million Indians may be LGBTHQIA+. 90 million persons, a large percentage unaware who they are nor do they have the means to empower themselves to live their true selves openly. Each of the 90 million have family who need to be empowered with information to support them.
The QueerInk project records the lived experiences of LGBTHQIA+ Indians through oral histories and digital reproductions of significant artifacts. Queer Ink places queer histories as part of Indian history.
QueerInk is a project of Lakshya Trust.
