Saira Mujtaba

Broadcaster, India

Saira Mujtaba is a broadcaster and reads the news in English at All India Radio, New Delhi. However, Saira is a writer and filmmaker at heart and regularly publishes her written work and contributes to the visual media. After witnessing two tragic deaths in her family that stemmed from homophobic sentiments she felt the responsibility to support the LGBTQ community. Fundamentally, Saira believes that honor killings and suicide due to discrimination constitute serious issues that must be publically talked about. She has thus started to share her experiences and ideas via different media outlets. Saira recently completed a written review of Ahmed Ghosh's upcoming book Transgressive Sexualities: Normalizing Society Through Claiming Rights
