About the Organizer
Maya is a unique initiative of the LGBTQI+ community of Jindal Global University, Sonipat (India). They seek to provide an avenue for discussions on issues of gender and sexuality.
Maya does not hope to merely limit itself to theorizing upon individuals’ gender and sexuality, but rather document the lives of those individuals at different places and stages of life.
What are they looking for?
They seek new and original writings (fiction or nonfiction), articles, poetry, book/film reviews, opinion pieces, campus reports, research studies, art, memes & photography. You can also visit the website to get an idea of the kind of content that we have published.
