Coming Out: Divyaroop's Story

23 year old Divyaroop is a BPO employee in Mumbai. He likes his boy's clothing, his high heels and his makeup. Divyaroop is androgynous, a term that's often mistaken to be similar to being transgender. Hailing from a small town, Divyaroop's family couldn't come to terms with his sexuality when his sister found out he is gay. With the support of friends and loved ones, Divyaroop just wants to prove to his family that he can lead a life of dignity just the way he is.

101 India Coming Out follows the inspiring stories of members of the LGBTQ community who have finally decided that they don't want to hide who they really are, or who they love. The series cuts across gender, sexuality and economic backgrounds to tell inspiring and emotional stories.
