A documentary about middle-class Muslim women in India who refuse to conform to gender norms. They describe in poignant detail the everyday struggles they face in order to be true to themselves.

About Nigah

Nigah is a non-funded queer collective that works on issues of gender and sexuality. Apart from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, we understand queer to be any identity, politics or process that challenges dominant norms. Based in Delhi since 2003, we try to create inclusive and safe queer spaces using media, workshops and discussions. We organise events each month and entry to all the events is free.
