Queer Chosen Families
Raviraj from Narrative Practices India, Aditya from the QT center collective, Hyderabad and Aarathi Selvan from Pause for Perspective talk about Queer Chosen Families.
Some questions they sit with are:
What comes to mind when you think of the word chosen family?
How does chosen family visit you? How is it present in your life and the lives of others you may know?
What would care look like within chosen families?
Why is family of a certain kind only valid? (Do we have to go the marriage way for family to be valid? Why is state interfering and making it hard for practicalities if chosen family to be present in our lives? )
How do we build connections with a community or a chosen family? What is your sense of what maybe needed to do this?
