TGIF: For Pride, The Best Queer Images of Indian Film (Obviously, Shahrukh is Best Daddy)

“Queer”= anything non-gender normative. Can be drag, can be transexuals/Hijras, can be a male-male couple, can be a female-female couple, whatever! And to help, I called on my friend who is a pansexual drag queen with a degree in gender studies currently working at a Queer history museum. Just so you can relax, all of these photos were approved by a qualified expert.

Sanjay and Salman, Best Couple

      • But is it as dramatic as naming your daughter after your best friend and giving said daughter the duputta the best friend tearfully threw at you during your last meeting???

  1. Loving Tabu! Best police tailor ever! Wonder if it’s the same prison tailor who did Don’s prison outfit in Don 2. Wondering why Salman over Ajay for best Daddy in uniform?

    I think young, pre-muscley, post baby-fat Shah Rukh is more my idea of a twink. Or young, skinny Saif. But what do I know?

    Best young love rules. And best male-male scene. Sigh. For more lesbian representation I nominate Juhi’s camerawoman in PBDHH and the GNC young woman in DDD. No category other than awesome lesbians.

    • Salman has the mustache and the swagger, just felt more Daddy-ish.

      I ran multiple potential “twink” photos past my consultant, and she picked Ranveer. Although she also said that Shahrukh was a Twink and is now a Daddy.

      There’s also the friend in Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na! Another awesome lesbian.

  2. I don’t know how anyone other than Tiger Shroff is Best Twink! To me he’s always given off that vibe.

    (I’ve spent 10 minutes trying to get a screen shot of him in here but it isn’t letting me do it. Is it you or is it me?)

    • But Tiger Shroff is already “Best Androgynous”! he can’t be both.

      Nothing on my side blocking the screenshot, at least nothing I am doing. You can’t load images to comments though, you have to put in a link.

    • I agree! Sending the question to my consultant now, I’ll let you know what she says.
