The M.S. Chadha Center for Global India

The inaugural event of The M.S. Chadha Center for Global India new series, ‘Power, Inequality, Dissent,’ will be a performance by A. Revathi, a trans woman activist, performer, and writer from southern India. ‘Vellai Mozhi – Frankly Speaking’ is a powerful first-person account of a hijra-thirunangai-transfeminine experience in southern India. Revathi enacts her life as a Tamil trans woman, stringing stories about finding community, navigating family relationships, encountering violence, embracing hijra-thirunangai life, building solidarities, finding and losing love, and discovering the joys of writing and performing.

The performance will be in Tamil with English subtitles and live commentary. Translation & Moderation by Aniruddhan Vasudevan (fellow; Anthropology).

Full events details will be posted on the The M.S. Chadha Center for Global India events calendar.
