PROJECT BOLO, meaning 'Project Speak Up', offers role models by documenting Indian LGBT persons -- their growing up, struggles, love, career, achievements and life.

Project Bolo's objective is to record Indian LGBT history, as well as inspire and empower the LGBT community in India, by presenting video interviews of LGBT persons and role models, who 'speak up' about their life and work.

This interview features PARMESH SHAHANI.

----------------------------

PARMESH SHAHANI

Parmesh Shahani wears his style and sexuality on his sleeve - be it when speaking at the high-powered TED conference, signing away his book Gay Bombay, at a board meeting at his corporate office or a gay party in town! However Parmesh admits to be a late bloomer, becoming comfortable with his sexuality only after meeting Riyad and Roy Wadia and going abroad to study at MIT, Boston. Now back in India heading a thinktank called Culture Lab and instituting a diversity policy at his corporate office, Parmesh is never afraid to speak his mind. With a finger on the contemporary gay pulse and a global vision, he is an inspiration for the youth.
