Sharif D Rangnekar – Pride Month – Celebration or Appropriation?

June is celebrated every year as Pride Month. But amidst so much social media noise, are we losing its real significance? How can organizations specifically understand and celebrate the true spirit of Pride Month? Author & LGBTQ+ activist Sharif Rangnekar shared his thoughts with us, tapping into his own experience growing up as a gay man in India. With over 25 years of experience in the fields of media, publishing, research and public relations, he uses talks, writing, event curation and music, to advocate change and garner support for the LGBTQ+ community. A communications and workplace sensitisation consultant, Sharif is the author of Straight To Normal, a TedX speaker and the Festival Director of the Rainbow Lit Fest.
