Yes, We Exist is a platform that actively raises awareness about the LGBTQIA+ community in India. For Pride Month, they have dedicated six Instagram lives with experts and people of the LGBTQIA+ community on topics suggested by their followers. In the 60 minutes live set to be conducted once a week, the representatives have picked relevant and urgent subjects that reflect the challenges faced by the community at large. The viewers can participate in the hour-long discussion, share their experiences and have inputs regarding their shared grievances by an expert. Some of the topics to be discussed are ‘loneliness and making friends within the community’, ‘dealing with a family who does not accept your gender/sexuality’, ‘looking after Mental Health if you can’t afford therapy’, and more.
