Shubha Chacko was a great help  

Shubha gave us ALL our initial Bangalore leads.  
She is really connected.  

Though not of any particular religious persuasion
herself, she expressed to us the importance that
religion plays (positive or negative) in social justice
and human rights.  She was very happy to help
Other Sheep network in its mission to see LGBT
people of faith fully accepted within their religious
spheres.

Jose and Steve are deeply grateful for the
tremendous help Shubha was in getting us
immediately connected in Bangalore.
Two books recommended by Shubha Chacko

  • Same-Sex Love in India:  A Literary History
    Edited by Ruth Vanita and Saleem Kidwai

  • Because I Have a Voice
