Outspoken Indian gay rights activist Harish Iyer is used to fighting for equal rights but over the last month he has turned into a messenger of love. He is the host of "Gaydio", the first radio show dedicated to lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) issues in India, where homosexuality is a taboo and gay sex can be punished with up to 10 years in jail. "As an activist, it is in my DNA to stand up for a cause," Iyer, 38, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. "You hear heart-warming love stories during your activism, but you are busy being the savior. But on this show, I look at the softer side."
