About us

Qitaab is an LGBTQ+ zine for the Indian reader. We aim to give a voice to Indians to express their opinions, artwork, written work, and other creative pieces through our platform. It is a feminist zine that believes in the practice of intersectionality.

Human rights and their development are not measured only by their ease of access to the majority, but by how accessible they are to the most vulnerable minorities. The LGBTQ+ community in India is especially vulnerable as it lies on the intersection of many conversations that we have not yet had. Qitaab hopes to open up some of these conversations through the voices of the youth, and explore issues relevant to India’s LGBTQ+ community.
