The spokesperson for Blued Sanyam Sharma – Marketing Director, Blued India commented, “Blued is the largest gay social app in India. While we have done out of the box campaigns in India, which focusses on strengthening the LGBTQI+ community with Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, being associated as exclusive dating partner, we aim at registering our presence as a brand which will always stand for the community rights and position our brand strongly to help the LGBTQ community in India.”
One of the winners, Jayant went out to comment on the still prevalent injustices which LGBTQI+ members have to face in the current Indian society even after the decimalization of section 377. He said, “Although the act of love has been decriminalized still the stigma is so deep-rooted in the Indian psyche that we feel suffocated. With films like Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and apps like Blued, we at least get a chance to breathe freely and come into the limelight with the dignity that we deserve but haven’t ever received. I am very thankful to Blued for giving us this opportunity to meet Ayushmann sir and hear his enlightening thoughts of the gender identity crisis that I and many of my friends face on a day to day basis.”
