Subject

Political organization, misogyny, Politics, Homophobia, oral history, Desh Pardesh

Description

Punam Khosla was the coordinator of the Desh Pardesh festival from the second festival in 1991 to 1993. She headed the festival with clear political goals, which often clashed with other organizers of the event but she was not willing to compromise the vision of Desh Pardesh. She discusses the immense amount of misogyny and homophobia she encountered, which were a couple of the principle reasons of her departure. She also touches on her work prior to Desh and the resentment she felt towards her in these spaces as well.
