Delhi: Communities of Belonging

Delhi: Communities of Belonging chronicles contemporary LGBTQ life in Delhi. Sunil Gupta and Charan Singh’s project enables us to witness the intimate, ordinary and loving moments of seventeen diverse individuals and couples. Gupta and Singh have created a rich and tender mosaic of the ways in which the subjects navigate life, work and love in a country where anti-sodomy laws dating back to the British Empire were only recently struck down in 2009 and then were restored after the Supreme Court turned back the ruling in 2013.

Gupta and Singh have photographed an array of friendship networks accentuating human warmth through the thoughtful dialogue that departs from a pre-supposed victim narrative of queer lives.
