Classic Rajasthan – Gay India Tour

Trip Name – Classic Rajasthan
DelhiMandawaBikanerJaisalmer – Osian – JodhpurUdaipur – Deogarh – Samode – Agra – Delhi
Starting from the Delhi, the capital of modern India, this itinerary takes you across the state, bringing alive the vibrant colors of the desert state. Delhi is also the hub of India’s amazing LGBT communities. Our craefully planned tour will enable you to interact and mingle with Delhi’s gay communities. Visit Osian on the sand dunes and the great kingdoms of the Rajputana- Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner,Udaipur, and Jaipur where even so many years after democracy handed power to the people, the old ways live on.

Today, many of the forts and palaces have opened their doors to visitor as luxury hotels and resorts. Often run by members of erstwhile ruling families, these have given a new lease of life not only to building but also to the culture. Staying here is to almost travel back in to the time- to an era that was gracious, graceful and romantic. In most places, erstwhile rulers are still addressed as ‘father’, ‘protector’, ‘provider of the food’, and command both respect and loyalty and though the pomp of ceremony many not compare with what it was in the old days, just a glimpse of the shadow of a royal lifestyle can be a fascinating and memorable experience.

Throughout the duration of your tour in India, you will either choose to travel on your own or as a part of a larger gay group. All our guides are gays or gay welcoming, similarly all our host hotels in India welcome LGBT travellers.

The LGBT India Buzz

It’s amazing that so much happens over a week or a fortnight. So much gets written about and a lot needs to be talked about. So we decided to get all the LGBT buzz from India at one place and share it with you guys. Tell us what you think about it.

Celina Jaitley set the trend and she did a lot by becoming the unofficial brand ambassador for the community in Bollywood, but it was about time we got some more celebrities to start talking LGBT, so here is Sonam Kapoor, talking joyously about the fact that gay marriages are now legal in New York:

http://www.todaybreakingnews.com/?p=3685

It does not stop here, Miss India Hasleen Kaur chose this time to voice her support for the Indian LGBT community too. Says Hasleen, “Why do we define boundries of love based on sexual orientation? I don’t understand why we should discriminate against a non-heterosexual. They’re completly normal people with the ability to love.

Here is the complete link:

http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2011-07-05/miss-india/29738216_1_sexual-orientation-lgbt-pride-month-lgbt-rights

Our respectable Health Minister stirred a big hornet’s nest last week when he first made and then revoked a statement implying that homosexuality is a disease. He obviously has not been keeping himself informed, so here is a nice and simple read about why it is perfectly ‘normal’ to be in a same sex relationship:

http://idiva.com/news-relationships/why-homosexuality-is-not-a-disease/6195

The celebs are all up in arms and rightly so against the Minister’s statement, they want him to apologise. Azad however has not apologized but simply blamed the media of twisting his comments – so politician like!

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/bollywood/news-interviews/Azad-must-apologise-Celebs/articleshow/9111759.cms

And finally, somewhat old but a very welcome piece of news. India is aiming to become the hub of surrogacy tourism and this amazing gay couple just became parents in India:

Deaf, mute gay couple becomes new parents:
