Color Positive, (Color Positive (+), CP+) is a production house based out of Mumbai that deals with the taboo around LGBTQIA community in India and worldwide. They are a motley bunch of independent professionals from different streams who share this belief and are dedicated to keeping narrating more stories and conversations around it.
Color Positive primarily does theatrical productions and they have a YouTube Channel too. Their first play was staged for Queer Azaadi March in 2017 also named Color Positive, as a unique dark comedy based on homosexual relationships and HIV/AIDS. Their second play “Jeena” was a refreshing take on marriage at the Gay Bombay Talent Show 2017. The play’s storyline revolves around the parents in Indian families who force their children to marry without caring about or in usual cases, not knowing about their child’s sexual orientation.
They have been doing some fantastic work in the recent times . They also have planned big annual event called The Color Positive Show that will stage the following.
1. A Pageant that crowns 6 models. (The most inclusive pageant that includes straight allies, LGBT, drag and non-binary folk) in collaboration with MGWI and MTQI. (Entries for contestants open until Nov 30th, 2018).
2. Dance, Singing, Poetry, Stand-up, Arts and more- A show that celebrates the essence of the LGBT by showcasing the arts.
3. An Awards Show that awards actors, movies, new comers, activists and more for their contribution in the year gone by.
4. And Color Positive presents a sequel to their play “Jeena – to live” Jeena 2 – Magic with Vengeance (where a Jeannie will leave you mesmerised) as the highlight of the evening.
