If you are a queer in India, you have definitely heard of the Naz Foundation. An NGO that works on HIV/AIDS and sexual health, this is also the organisation behind the petition to amend Section 377 of the IPC at the Supreme Court. They are all set to start a 1,200 sq. ft. centre for the LGBTQ+ community, to create a safe space for them. Let’s find out more. To build this community centre, a silent auction will be held by the two organisations on February 12, at the Mexican Ambassador HE Frederico Salas’ farmhouse in Rajkori. Titled Love: A Silent Auction, the fundraiser is expected to have about 250 people, that will include HNI bidders across the pink community. The auction list will feature some extremely sought-after products. A handbag by Tarun Tahiliani worth INR 60 lakhs, clothing from luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, a signed collection of William Dalrymple’s travelogues, a statue by designer Sanjyt Singh, fine dining options at Sidecar, Megu, Diva, and other premium Delhi restaurants, queer-friendly stay options hosted by hotelier Keshav Suri’s The LaLit Hotels, and Sarai at Toria in Madhya Pradesh, and many more.
