Poster Abstract

While homosexuality exists in all civilizations of life and has been seen in various perspectives by all peoples, it is often seen as a taboo subject matter. Especially when considering the more religious, rather heteronormative environment that is seen in Indian communities. With my research, it is with this research that one will hope to learn what it is about India's socio-cultural environment that puts homosexuality in such a negative light.
