India not cool w/ PDA, reaaallly not cool w/ gay people being alive

From an AOL article about an Indian royal family disowning a prince for being gay:

" Homosexuality is banned in India and punishable by up to 10 years in jail, but gay activists are trying to lift the veil of secrecy over the community in a country where public hugging or kissing even among heterosexuals invites angry stares, lewd comments and even beatings."

Read the whole article here.

Probably a rich cinematic vein waiting to be created there: movies (they would have to be indie movies more or less I think) about being gay in India. Time to export the idea of a Queer Cinema movement to India. Time to discover the Indian versions of Greg Araki, Todd Haynes, Christine Vachon, Todd Verow & the like.

Also a Public Display of Affection film movement could be useful there too.
