Funny yet deep, Arzoo Naqvi’s illustrations raise issues pertaining to the LGBTQ+ community as well as celebrate it. Her posts on Instagram seek to educate one and all about the reality of being non-binary and how those who don’t belong to the LGBTQ+ group can become better allies. She also fiercely propagates equality within and for the community. Short comics, celebrating queer folks, and random pondering (which can make you relate or simply think) make up her feed.

Veer Misra’s Instagram is a mix of his expression related to the queer community as well his personal life. So where in one post you’ll see him enjoying a wedding, the other will have him depicting the emotional spectrum of people–trying to move the focus away from the hypersexualised representation. He’s committed to putting forth a wholesome picture of the LGBTQ+, from the ups to the down and from the injustices to the wins.

TEDx speaker and Mr. Gay World India (2016) Anwesh Sahoo started his new page, The Effemiare, to display his illustrations. Along with his work, he also speaks of the queer world. From his own journey, struggles with finding confidence, and constantly learning as well as observations and opinions about the community, he posts about it all in larger than life illustrations.

Opashona Ghosh brings to the fore the perspective of a female queer. Navigating the world of gender and sexuality definitions, her art explores the erotic graphics to express the love that surrounds it. Turning negative into positive, she takes the not-so-good instances in her life or current events and looks for a more promising spin on it. Answering her own questions as well as others’ seems to be her quest through her art.
