In honour of Pride Month 2022, Reach Lives is launching the ‘LGBTQube Project’ in Bengaluru. As part of our Pride month outreach, Reach Lives has also partnered with BookMyShow (Book A Smile) to host a private screening of 777 Charlie at PVR Orion Mall for 50 members of the LGBTQ+ community including trans-persons who have previously never been able to visit malls and watch movies in multiplexes.
Although trans-gender individuals have been part of Indian society for centuries, they are still routinely discriminated everywhere.
We want to thank Ms. Nakshatra, award winning, trans-woman and activist who helped us organize this event. We are excited to announce that Reach Lives will be adopting the health and nutrition needs of India's first trans-run orphanage, Nammane Summane (founded by Ms. Nakshatra). We also want to thank PVR and Book My Show (Book a smile initiative) for their support.
The Reach Lives team has launched a website, www.reachlives.com/lgbtqube, where people can learn more about the project, contribute funds to cover healthcare costs of trans-persons and share messages of support, hope and love with the LGBTQ+ community.
