LGBT community makes presence felt at ALF


NAMSAI, 6 Nov: The three-day Arunachal Literature Festival (ALF) – one of the most popular events conducted by a government department in the state – ended here on Saturday. The fourth edition of the popular ALF saw the participation of noted authors, poets, novelists, scholars, and intellectuals from all over the country. Students and booklovers also attended the event in large numbers. Two things stood out in this edition of the ALF: one being the rush witnessed at the bookstalls, and the second was the poetry recitation event by members and allies of the LGBT community.
