Ignoring society

Being a homosexual himself, Harish says hat his friends and relatives were a little stumped when he came out as one. However, his friends and family are much more accepting of his sexuality. He says that his cousins are as much with him in my fight for equality as everyone else now. But, his grandmother’s reaction was amazing according to the activist. He says, “She was fine with me being gay. At 85 now, she is more casteist than discriminatory of sexual orientations, which is sad, funny, and amazing all at the same time. But at 85, we don’t expect her to change. Do we?”
