South Asian queerness is a defiant celebration of who we are. It’s a combination of unapologetic self-expression and joyous representation. Here, in the UK, the LGBTQIA+ scene has been boldly shaped by a large minority of South Asian voices. One of these most notable influences has been presenter and producer Ryan Lanji. A mainstay in the London queer scene, Lanji is also the founder of the thriving South Asian LGBTQIA+ hub HUNAGAMA, which loosely translates to ‘chaos’ or ‘uproar’ in Hindi. The collective’s mission is to champion queer alternative South Asian music, film, art and culture. Together, Lanji and HUNGAMA are working tirelessly to change what queerness can look like in London.
