Queer collectives of DU are trying their best to keep up with the celebrations of pride month virtually. Thus, LGBTQ members from all the Delhi University affiliated colleges like Miranda House, Hindu College, and others have come up with different innovative ideas. From Instagram live sessions to QnAs, the virtual sessions are a total hit.
The month of June is celebrated as Pride month worldwide. The theme of 2021, “Fight Continues” can be interpreted in many ways. Hence, it can be considered as a motivation to fight against covid and also as a driving force for the queers to fight for themselves. It is a fight for LGBTQ rights and against all regressive laws against them. Thus, it is highly motivating and fills zest and excitement amongst the queer collectives of DU.
