“Love is a beautiful emotion which must be expressed freely and not be restricted on the basis of gender. Our series, All about section 377 season 2 highlights LGBTQ issues at a basic grass root level. It’s not only the first series to take up struggles faced by the Hijara/transgender issue but it happens to deal with homophobia in Indian villages due to prejudices and lack of knowledge”
Anuya Chauhan Kudecha (Dancing Shiva) feels,
“As mankind progresses in the realm of technology, infrastructure and so on, our thoughts need to progress, one’s sexual orientation is no basis to discriminate individuals as it’s very offensive for a person’s dignity.”
Mr Shyam Patel (Philum Makers) quotes,
“It is important for people to understand the true emotional journey of the LGBTQ community in our society. Our web series enlightens the viewer on the harsh reality”
Ankit Bhatia who plays a bisexual character says that the series is extremely close to his heart. He says he had no problems romancing a man in the show. Whereas Gulshan Nain who had played the homophobic man in the first season matures this season. He stands up for the basic rights of an individual, and against homophobia as well as in support of transgenders
