For this month of love, we are bringing you a two-part Valentine’s Special miniseries where host Suryatapa Mukherjee speaks to queer couples about their journey.
In this episode of Pride and Prejudice, we hear from Dr Zahid Shafi Ansari and Ranjan Koul, a gay couple in their 50’s living in Delhi with their six cats. Ranjan is a Kashmiri Pandit who grew up in the Valley while Zahid grew up in Saudi Arabia.
This is a story of what it was like to be gay in the 80’s, the queer icons they looked up to, the history they witnessed before their eyes. And of course, it’s a story about finding love and peace.
