can anyone please help. i have a couple of gay friends who are going to india to visit agra etc. what type of reception can they expect. how do indian people see homosexuality. my friends are not in your face gays and dont flaunt it they just want to know how the indian people react
Its not as if they spend their time kissin an a cuddling eh.
Once we realised it was so easy to spot them it seemed to be a new pastime for us.
Tell them not to worry Goans just tend to ignore this sort of thing unless you are just in their face.
as for gays in goa i think its the samein resorts world over..as long as descretion is the order of the day, their money is as welcome as anyone elses.
Across the Middle and Far East, guys holding hands and arms across shoulders is often a sign of simply best friends.
In the past, iv'e been asked if i'm gay.
Ha!! I'm not even happy
Any gays going to Goa, I am sure you will have no problems - have a great time.
It probably wont turn many heads in Goa but in India public displays of affection (holding hands, stroking, kissing) are very much a no no (in general). Cross the border into Karnatika and Maharashtra and you will get some pretty strange looks also if you aren't covered up properly also.
Was in Hampi with my partner and since we were in 4x4 most of the time were dressed lightly. My partner totally forgot about dress code round a bigger temple, she got shouted at and was totally embarrassed by the fact she was wearing a short skirt. She hadn't been thinking as she did know this after having been to other parts of India.
I never felt comfortable in a few places in Goa holding hands as I could tell a lot of people were watching, of course this was a real passion killer for her! Most of Goa is probably OK it's just older people, both muslim and hindu.
