Men of Faith
Posted November 29, 2010
India's National Gay & Lesbian Magazine recently published a ground-breaking article on openly gay Vaishnavas within ISKCON and the Vaishnava tradition in general. The article features interviews with Jayesh, a young Indian devotee struggling for acceptance, and Amara Das, one of the Gay and Lesbian Vaishnava Association's original founding members.
"Men like Jayesh and Amara Das are slowly, but definitely changing one of the most influential Hindu movements of all times. How their battle turns out will have a bearing on the lives of all those who are struggling to reconcile their faith with their sexuality, and more importantly, test the inclusiveness and tolerance of the world's most ancient religion."
