PHOTOS: Dual Lives Of Gay Desi’s In India

Calcutta-based fashion photographer, Amit Dey, recently did a photo series titled “Coy Mistress”. It focuses on the dual lives that people from the LGBT community have to live because of the pressures of society.

“I wanted to make a point about love having no bar on gender.”

Being bisexual himself and having noticed his friends from the community, he realised that a lot of people were hiding their sexual identities, with all parties suffering in the process. “I wanted to make a point about love having no bar on gender. It just happens and we cannot predict how or when it does,” Dey said.
