Join us for a discussion on 'coming out' and 'sexuality'!

# We'll continue and conclude our discussion on 'coming out' that we started at our previous meeting.

Share your understanding of this term, your experience of being 'out' or bring along any relevant material in form of passages/poems/articles etc that can offer a perspective on 'coming out'.

#We'll start with a discussion on 'sexuality' with an aim to gradually address a broad range of questions related to it. Initially, we'll focus on the following-

1) Will homosexuality negatively impact the family?
2) Is homosexuality unnatural?
3) Is homosexuality abnormal?
4) What makes people gay? Does something have to ‘happen’ in order to make a person gay?
5) Is homosexuality a mental disease?
6) What about Bestiality/Paedophilia?
7) Can homosexuality be cured?
8) Does homosexuality lead to spread of HIV/AIDS?

Feel free to bring/refer/share any resource on this topic that can help develop a better understanding of such questions, from a scratch!

We hope that this discussion will serve as a way to document some general ideas on 'coming out' and 'sexuality' which may belong to the entire spectrum of queer individuals of various age groups. We also hope that it helps us to address these issues from a youth-centric perspective, so that it can form a basis for student-interactions and campus visits that QCI plans to hold in future. Join us and contribute to the initiative!


QueerCampus India- this is your space to speak your mind, share your experiences with respect to coming out, family, friends, realization of your sexuality, your specific interests or what you expect from a queer youth support group like QCI. Feel free to give ideas or suggestions for QCI.
