A month-long celebration of diversity and togetherness will be seen amongst the LGBT community as there will be multiple events lined up by Gay Bombay during the coming month starting with their Saturday night party on 25th Aug.
Call Me By Your Name
Call Me by Your Name is a 2017 coming-of-age romantic drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by James Ivory. It is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman . The movie also won an academy award for the best writing adapted screenplay earlier this year. However, India didn’t see the release of the movie. So its even more important for GayBombay to screen such awesome movies for the community here in India.

The band is credited with the first ever English dedication to the LGBTQ community back in 2013 which now has a fresh video. Earlier this year, its new song, Dignity, was adopted by the global movement for women – She Decides.
Ranging from rock to funk to jazz, the band has an interesting mix of its own, not hesitating to cover the likes of Stevie Wonder, Rolling Stone, The Police, Lady Gaga or even Justin Timberlake. The band, since it took shape, has attempted to send out socially relevant messages through harmonic tunes.
Friends of Linger has featured in media spaces such as Times of India, Hindustan Times, New Indian Express, www.gaystarnews.com, www.scoopwhoop.com, DNA, www.thewire.in, Rolling Stone as well as Radio One.
