Happy #LGBTQHistoryMonth! Let’s make sure it’s as #intersectional as possible. #NaveenBhat

Naveen Bhat is a non-binary, bisexual, South Asian actor and filmmaker. They were born in India, and raised in California. During a family trip to Agra, India, their parents detained them by confiscating their passport and threatened to “fix” their queerness with institutionalization and therapy. Naveen sought protection from their parents by taking them to court. The Delhi High Court sided with Naveen as the Indian legal system recognizes transgender people as a legal third gender. Naveen's story has been made into a short documentary, Escaping Agra. #NaveenBhat #LGBTQHistory #QTPOCHistory
