Now, music takes a queer shape
The landmark Supreme Court ruling that decriminalises sex between samegender couples allowed the LGBTQI community to make itself heard in different ways, without fear. And one of these ways is through music, or more specifically, through an album called Queerism, which is in the works. Navi Mumbai-based Pragya Pallavi is the musician behind it, and she will release Lingering Wine – the first single from it – tomorrow. “The track’s retro, Latin flavour gives a taste of the feast of musical styles that feature on Queerism,” Pallavi tells this diarist, adding that a preValentine’s Day date is the best time to release any song that celebrates love and equality.
