By YKA Staff:
The morning of 27th February, in its first YKA@Social event in Delhi, Youth Ki Awaaz and Cake (our gender and sexuality website) hosted a panel discussion on ‘Redefining Gender’. The idea was to talk about gender identities that go beyond the usual accepted binaries and to explore the interaction between gender and sexuality. And what a success it was!
The event attracted a full house where the audience engaged in a very stimulating conversation with our panelists Pramada Menon (Queer, feminist activist and co-founder of CREA), Vikramaditya Sahai (Trans/queer activist and faculty, Ambedkar University) and Shambhavi Saxena (Features writer at Youth Ki Awaaz and Cake), along with the moderator Manak Matiyani (Queer activist and Executive Director of The YP Foundation).
The crisp discussion along with the Q&A session went on for one and a half hours and concluded with some interesting conversations that were then carried on over tea, coffee and cookies.
We are grateful to all those who participated and hope to keep holding such engaging discussions in future with an attempt to break conventions and stereotypes.
