Coming Out: Gautam's Story

Gautam hails from humble beginnings. Gautam was bullied throughout his childhood, being called names like 'girl, eunuch, and hijra'. Thankfully, when he told his parents about his sexuality, they stood by him like a rock. Coming from a humble background, Gautam's dad is a rickshaw driver in Delhi, but supports his son completely. And it's a good thing, too, because Gautam didn't know there was one more major speed bump around the corner.

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.
