|(j) A scene from a fashion show fund raiser organized by SAATHII Calcutta on January 31, 2005, in support of three young self-help groups of gay, bisexual and transgender men - Aasha from Imphal (in Manipur), Saraswati from Betarigaon (in Orissa) and Swikriti from Calcutta. Clothes and fabrics provided by artists from these groups were displayed on the ramp and through an exhibition. Funds generated through sales of these clothes and fabrics were donated to the groups for their sexuality, human rights, sexual health and HIV/AIDS related work. Picture: Dev Nayak
This fund raising effort is an ongoing one. If you want to buy clothes and support the groups in their work, please view the catalogues for the entire range of clothes and fabrics available - Catalogue 1 and Catalogue 2. Information on how to contact us is provided in the catalogues.
