Abstract: Queer Activism in India by Naisargi Dave examines the emergence of lesbian identity and communities in India from the 1980s to the early 2000s. The books spans a period when gay activism was largely resistive and challenging, reflected in the protests over the temporary banning in 1998 of Deepa Metha's film Fire, about two sisters-in-law who reluctantly but passionately fall in love; the first gay pride event held in India in Delhi in 2008; and the decriminalization of adult, consensual same-sex sex in 2009.
