PROJECT BOLO, meaning ‘Project Speak Up’, offers role models by documenting Indian LGBT persons – their growing up, struggles, love, career, achievements and life.
Project Bolo’s objective is to record Indian LGBT history, as well as inspire and empower the LGBT community in India, by presenting video interviews of LGBT persons and role models, who ‘speak up’ about their life and work.
This interview features GEETA KUMANA.
For Geeta Kumana, it has been an eventful ride - from being a windsurfer to an activist to a businesswoman - she has glided through them all rather smoothly. Her first brush with the lesbian community was at Stree Sangam, but Geeta soon founded her own organization Aanchal Trust, which was perhaps the first lesbian organization in Mumbai to have an office, hire professional staff, run a counsel & distress helpline and even have a lesbian radio spot on air! Geeta soon became the one and only out visible lesbian in Mumbai, her photographs splashed across newspapers and live on every news channel. But then, Geeta is one who knows no fear and is known to always speak her mind.
