Why we do Gulabi Mela?

1. To enable confidence within the talented LGBTQ+ artists by creating a platform to artistically express various queer identities and expressions to a larger mainstream society.

2. To create a cross-sharing space for discussions and interactions on LGBTQ+-themed theatre, music, and literature leading to broader acceptance of LGBTQ+ communities and their rights.

3. To offer an opportunity to budding LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs to pilot their ideas and

strengthen their chances of emerging as successful enterprises in the longer run.

4. To attract national and international visibility to India's LGBTQ+ community's Health and Human rights issues.
