TARSHI's working paper 'Sexuality and Disability in the Indian Context, 2018' is out!

The Working Paper is based on the original Sexuality and Disability in the Indian Context (2010), which presented the information sourced from self-advocates, field professionals, and individuals with disabilities and their families. It has been updated to reflect recent changes in law and policy as well as narratives of change shared with us by various sources, some of whom include those who contributed to the 2010 working paper. You can download the paper from here.

Here's information on some recent issues of our eMagazine, In Plainspeak

Memory and Sexuality, April 2018 issue of In Plainspeak

We make memories, just as our memories make us. But it is not a simple matter of “I experience, therefore I remember”. Memory is also influenced by our social and cultural milieu and there’s a lot more going on. To explore these connections and more, check out our April issueon Memory and Sexuality.

Home and Sexuality, March 2018 issue of In Plainspeak

Home. Be it a real home or an aspirational one, the very word evokes longing and a sense of comfort, safety, and belongingness. As March’s articles show us, when it comes to Home and Sexuality, sometimes the real and the aspirational meet and sometimes they do not.

Friendship and Sexuality, February 2018 issue of In Plainspeak

The statement “We are just friends”, does it make you wonder? Just friends? As in – merely friends? As in – friends not lovers?  Explore connections between Friendship and Sexuality in our February issue.

The Anniversary Issue, January 2018 issue of In Plainspeak

Happy New Year! May we all have more to celebrate, enjoy and be happy about!

We bring you this Anniversary Issue of In Plainspeak with a selection of articles from older issues. Check out our January issue for our interesting and amazing collection of articles.

And here are some earlier issues of In Plainspeak...

Freedom and Sexuality, December 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

It sounds so liberating to some, but to some others, freedom is the spark that can light the powder keg of sexuality. And that is why the sexual freedoms we have are so precious. Read more in our December issue.

Time and Sexuality, November 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

Take Time. Add Sexuality to it. How does it move? In a straight line, in circles, or does it zig and then zag? Does it loop around to the very beginning? Move in spirals? Wind down and stop? Going by the articles in the November issue, it seems to do all this and more.

Caste and Sexuality, October 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

A deeply entrenched issue in Indian society, the monster of caste, as Dr. Ambedkar called it, derides and rapaciously brutalizes not only potential matings and marriages but also the most delicate and fragile burgeonings of desire. For more on Caste and Sexuality, check out our October issue.

Accessibility and Sexuality, August 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

We can speak of many situations in terms of access or its lack for all kinds of people, and it will always give us insight into the society we live in. Check out our August issue to explore different aspects between Accessibility and Sexuality.

#TalkSexuality Campaign by TARSHI in collaboration with Youth Ki Awaaz

While growing up, any conversation that may be even remotely connected to sexuality is often evaded, be it in educational institutions or within our homes. Yet, these questions form a major part of our growing up years.
Through this campaign  #TalkSexuality, TARSHI in collaboration with Youth Ki Awaaz hopes to create conversations around these questions and discuss the need for Comprehensive Sexuality Education? Do join in!
