Interview – This is what you bring to the table!

In this write up, we'd like to share a sense of what emerges from a compilation of these responses. This is based on the thoughts and feelings that come through for those of us here at In Plainspeak who have had the joy of reading the original responses as they came in to us. (Some of the quotations that follow have been slightly edited for flow and to help connect themes.) We know that most things in the realm of art, information and ideas lend themselves to a wide range of inferences and insights depending on the individuals making the inferences.

Interview – Coupledom is a mix of meanings

Coupledom may or may not be for everyone, and does not mean the same thing to everyone. Importantly, coupledom does not hold the same value or position in our lives, even in the lives of the individuals perceived to be parts of a couple structure.

Editorial: Diversity and Sexuality

In our mid-month issue, we have the second part of the Shikha Aleya’s interview with six different people talking about aspects of sexuality and diversity from their own particular space of personal knowledge, as well as work, advocacy, art and activism across diverse fields.

सेक्सलेस इन द सिटी (जिसमें मेरी कोई गलती भी नहीं)

सेक्स या भावनात्मक जुड़ाव के लिए दोनों तरफ़ से जुड़ाव होना ज़रूरी है। विकलांगता के साथ जी रहे व्यक्ति को स्वाभाविक रूप से थोड़ा ज़्यादा देना होगा जिससे कि रिश्ता चल सके।

Editorial: Sex and Sexuality

Prisms cause rainbow effects because they refract light into its constituent colours. What this means is that the prism itself does not create the colours we see, but that they are already present in what appears to be colourless or ‘white’ light.
