Book Description

For years Indian lesbians have borne silent witness to distorted reflections of their reality. Here they choose to look themselves in the eye. Facing the Mirror brings together the richness and diversity of lesbian existence in India through fiction and poetry, essays and personal history. Countering the images of perverse desire generated by decades of lurid speculation, the writers quarried memory and imagination to describe what it really means to be a woman who loves other women. This book is a revelation for Indian lesbians who have never been exposed to each other's voices in a public domain. For the rest of the world, it is a compelling glimpse into the lives of those who remain unacknowledged in all the spheres of society they inhabit. These writings do not moderate either passion or anger for the eye of the beholder. The courage, the sensuality, the humour of being lesbian is worn proudly, in its many colours.
