The controversy around Section 377 of IPC raised a lot of questions about gay people, gay sex and homophobia. What is this whole 'gay' thing, anyway, said a large swathe of Indian society. And why is everyone making such a big fuss about it?
Actor Imran Khan has taken it upon himself to disabuse these people from their mistaken notions of homosexuality in a new satire video. Imran Khan poses as a sort of gay version of a sex advice columnist. In the video, Khan sits behind a laptop while viewers email in their questions (to firstname.lastname@example.org).
“I don’t understand why do these gay people choose to be gay? Why can’t they like Un-Gay?” asks one questioner. Another has a different problem altogether: "But these gay people, what they want to do is make everybody else gay.”
One macho guy asks, “I am a proud straight Indian, but I was wondering how do gay people take coffee?” The answer to this question culminates in a table-shaking, coffee-spilling bout of gay sex.
Another doubts, “Hey, why are you defending gay people so much. You are a gay or what?”
